NyanTube GIF hidden in Youtube for Android App

 
As many know Google is usual to insert in sites, applications or parts of code, some easter egg, jokes or pictures particular with the aim of a laugh to those who can find them. There are dozens or hundreds of these best curiosity and sometimes it comes to light a new one. Today is the turn of the official Youtube for Android that, within the code, it hides the particular gif you see above.
An image that probably many do not "understand" but which in reality hides a lot more than you can imagine. Do not talk about state secrets course the animation is part of the practice of dogfooding , or the habit by large companies, to carry out internal testing before launching a product or, in this case, to publish an application.
The GIF in this case shows a marked "confidential" which, we imagine, can be used as a warning to avoid the disclosure of the program in the test version of YouTube before the official launch. The funny thing is that the cat that shoots the laser destroying the other feline race is part of the phenomenon known as Nyan Cat (also known as Pop Tart Cat ) a meme , attributed to an 8-bit animated gif of a cat that flies with the body of a cherry Pop-Tart, leaving a rainbow behind him, with a remixed version of the music Nyan Cat / Pop Tart Cat - Know Your Meme.
Google pays attention to every detail and do not miss an opportunity to mention fads or events undoubtedly belonging to the internet world.
