復活節彩蛋(Easter Egg)本來是西方復活節的一種過節習俗,大夥兒在復活節當天,都會互相饋贈精心裝飾過的蛋蛋,象徵新生之意。後來有人開始用巧克力或其他材質做成蛋蛋的形狀,然後暗藏一些小玩意兒於內,收到的人並不知道蛋蛋內另含玄機,發現之後每生興奮之情,此後,復活節彩蛋便有「意外的驚喜」或「內藏玄機」的意味。

延伸至電腦軟體的世界中,許多軟體工程師在開發程式之餘,也許為了秀秀個人功力,或是為了紀念某些人事物,有時候會在軟體的程式碼中放入一段「餘興節目」,然而這些花樣並非軟體的正常功能,所以要秀出它們,除非原作者透露方法步驟,否則一般使用者根本不得其門而入,也正因為如此,電腦玩家就稱呼這些軟體幕後隱藏的程式為「復活節彩蛋」了。

再說說影音光碟的世界,以前VHS或VCD的儲存媒體大都只能存放電影的正片,極少有所謂的附加收錄可供觀賞,然而現在DVD單一碟片的容量至少為4.7GB,可以存放的不再只是單單一部電影,還可以有多變的視訊及音訊供選擇,尤其更吸引買家的就是豐富的special features了,這些附加收錄包含了導演隨片講評(Director's Commentary)、幕後花絮(Behind the Scenes)、剪掉片段(Deleted Scenes)、電影預告(Theatrical Trailer)、不同結局(Alternate Ending)等等,琳瑯滿目的選單絕對目不暇給,然而有一些nonofficial but hilarious的小花絮,像是NG片段(gag reel)、搞笑側拍等等,這些在你的DVD選單裡可是找不到的,你所能做的就是盡可能地把玩你的遙控器,在上上下下左左右右的過程中,說不定你就會突然發現一個前所未見的驚喜,這就是DVD裡所謂的Easter Eggs了!老實說想要自己發現這些藏匿在DVD裡的復活節彩蛋,實在不是件輕而易舉的事,還好Internet真是個便捷的工具,透過搜尋引擎或是一些知名的彩蛋網站(如http://www.dvdeastereggs.com、http://dvd.ign.com/eggs.html等),你可以找到全世界網友們的新奇發現,例如你可以在「紅磨坊」DVD裡看到妮可基嫚扮鬼臉,害伊旺麥奎格唱"Your Song"唱到笑場的精采畫面、還有「征服情海」特別版裡湯姆克魯斯頂著個大光頭在後台亂跑的場面、以及「浩劫重生」裡那個擺了N年的快遞包裹內到底裝了什麼,族繁不及備載,你若手邊有這些藏著彩蛋的DVD的話,不妨自己試試吧!
