This is a little piece of genius. At the moment, if you go to Newsweek.com and enter the Konami Code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Enter — a common video-game cheat that you may remember from Contra if you are a million years old like your Intel editors), this is what appears. Beware! “The haunted continue to walk the streets, often heard moaning ‘BRAAAAAIIIIIINS!’ [paraphrased].”
Now this is a website we would bid on. Thanks, Twitter, for finding this!
Update: Awesome! A Newsweek spokeswoman just told us: “It’s true that our programmers had a bit of fun and hid the Konami Easter egg in the site. It does not affect the rest of the site’s functionality. Now that we’ve all had a laugh, we will be removing it.” There’s life in them yet.
