Thanos did exactly what he said he was going to do in Infinity War. He collected all of the Infinity Stones and used them to snap half of all life in the universe out of existence. Now with Avengers: Endgame in theaters, Google has created an amazing Easter egg that will let you do the same with your own Mad Titan search results. But don’t worry, you can bring them back just as easily.

Right now, even if you haven’t seen Avengers: Endgame yet (don’t worry, it’s not a spoiler), go to Google and type “Thanos” into the search bar. (You can also look up “Mad Titan”). In addition to the top results and other related items that normally appear, you’ll see an animated Infinity Gauntlet, fully outfitted with all six Infinity Stones. Then, after making sure your audio is on, click on it. When you “snap” the Gauntlet’s fingers, half of your search results, the over 95 million links that Google just found for you, will vanish into dust and disappear.

That is way too much fun, and because we’ve now done it way more times than we care to admit, we learned something that makes it even better. The search results that vanish are chosen at random each and every time. “Dispassionate” and “fair,” just like when Thanos wiped out half of all living creatures.

And what happens if you snap the Infinity Gauntlet again without refreshing the page? The Infinity Gauntlet animation changes from a snap into a fist, and all of those missing results, nearly 48 million of them, reappear on your page.

What does this mean, if anything for Avengers: Endgame? We’re not saying. If you want to know, go see the movie, or look it up on Google.

Well, that is if you can find the link you’re looking for.
