Want to see YouTube go retro? Just slap in this code

The boffins over at YouTube are having a bit of retro geek craic this week with a little trick that makes YouTube go retro

We all spend far too much of our day on YouTube as it is, but if you wanted to make it a bit more fun today, you can go fully retro by cracking this code and slapping it into the search bar on YouTube.

If you're not sure exactly what that code is on about, then we can fill you in, since we've cracked it, what with us being all smart and that.

If you type '/ geekweek' into the search bar, then you'll get a very old school look ASCII look, which appears a bit something like this:

YouTube geekweek

All very geekish indeed (it reminds us a small bit of the good old days of teletext) but it's still quite a cool easter egg if nothing else.
