Google must be a fan of Friends, the hit show from the 90s, as it's rolled out some easter eggs in celebration of the sitcom's 25th anniversary.
If you Google-search each of the main Friends characters' names, you’ll be served up cute animations that take over your screen and should make any lover of the show giggle for a minute. Just be sure to turn up your volume to get the full effect.

So, if you Google-search "Phoebe Buffay" the results will show a guitar that you can click to hear Phoebe sing Smelly Cat, while a "Ross Geller" search shows a couch, which serves up him yelling “Pivot!” each time you click it until he says “I don’t think it’s gonna pivot anymore".
