Fact is stranger than fiction. The real world is stranger than movies. And life is full of mystery. I believe it, but it sounds a bit cheesy when you say it out loud, doesn’t it? Well, fortunately for all of you mystery-loving, secret-adoring, hidden detail-worshipping Pandas out there, the phrase turns out to be very true. And we can’t wait to share this with you.
Sitting in a nook on Reddit, there’s a very special community called r/IRLEasterEggs. Created back in 2015 and now housing over 433k members, it’s dedicated to documenting, sharing, and celebrating all of the tiny (and not so tiny) Easter eggs hidden in real life that people happen to stumble upon. As it turns out, it’s not just movies, TV shows, and video games that have delightful secrets stashed away for only the most perceptive and the incredibly lucky to find. Human beings and real life are much more interesting than some of us give them credit for.
Check out some of the most brilliant IRL Easter eggs that people have lovingly crafted below, give the tastiest finds an upvote, and be sure to let us know which ones were your faves and why. Found any Easter eggs in real-life yourselves? We’d love to hear all about them, dear Pandas.
