The Last Of Us 2 Has Two Hilarious NSFW Easter Eggs

Note: This post contains some not-safe-for-work sexual language and a minor spoiler for an early level of The Last of Us 2. Caution is advised if you want to find everything in the game on your own or if you’re reading at work!

Naughty Dog is known for slipping self-referential Easter eggs into its games, and they’re often funny as well as pretty clever. Uncharted 4’s playable version of Crash Bandicoot in Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher’s house might be the studio’s most memorable callback. That is, until you find the not-safe-for-work Easter eggs hiding in one of the early levels of The Last of Us Part 2.

We played about two hours of The Last of Us Part 2 at a preview event in Los Angeles, which included an early mission featuring protagonist Ellie and her companion Dina out on patrol to search for the zombie-like infected. During the mission, the pair find themselves trapped in a bookstore by a snowstorm, and they discover a hidden room that another member of their team, the late Eugene, turned into a marijuana grow house.

Eugene’s hideaway includes a bunch of other personal items that Ellie and Dina discover as they wander around, like a gas mask bong, among other things. And then the two women discover Eugene’s stash of videotapes. Turns out, they’re old VHS porn videos.

Ellie finds that two of Eugene’s tapes aren’t family-friendly by reading their labels, which is where Naughty Dog makes two great jokes. Like in our world, somebody living in the universe of The Last of Us, before the game’s 2013 outbreak of the Cordyceps fungus that basically turns people into zombies, made some porn movies with pun titles to riff on existing media. In Eugene’s video collection, Ellie finds the phenomenally titled “Smash Brandi’s Cooch”–a play on Naughty Dog’s own beloved PlayStation platformer, Crash Bandicoot.

The second parody is more for eagle-eyed fans of The Last of Us. It’s called “Dong of the Wolf,” which is an in-universe reference rather than a callback to a Naughty Dog game title. Back in The Last of Us, you might have noticed billboards and posters for a movie called “Dawn of the Wolf Part 2,” which featured a man with wolfish features embracing a woman. Find a specific billboard and Joel and Ellie have a conversation about the film, which looks like a werewolf take on something like Twilight. Apparently, there was a market for a more hardcore version.

While those Easter eggs were the most ridiculous and outwardly hilarious of the ones we saw in Naughty Dog’s hands-on demo, they weren’t the only ones. Near Eugene’s porn stash, we found an in-game PlayStation 3 system with a stack of Naughty Dog games beside it, including Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3. The interesting implication here is that Naughty Dog existed within the fictional universe of The Last of Us (at least until the outbreak in 2013). Maybe the pornographers of the game’s world only coincidentally landed on a Crash Bandicoot-like name for their movie–or maybe it’s now The Last of Us canon that somebody making porn in that world was just a really big fan.
