The Last of Us is fast becoming one of the most popular TV shows in recent times. With just two episodes in, the series has scored favorably with fans and critics alike.

Seeing the show’s popularity, Google has decided to join in the fun by means of a Google Search easter egg. Typing in and searching for The Last of Us on, Chrome, and the Google Search app on desktop or mobile triggers the fungal growth via a mushroom that will appear on the screen. Every time you tap or click on the said mushroom will cause the fungal infection to spread until it covers the whole screen.

As you may well know, the cordyceps brain infection is the cause of the zombie outbreak on the show, which is based on a real-world fungus that infects insects.
