A Basket of Pop Culture Easter Eggs

This week, in honor of the myriad Easter egg hunts that will be happening in the next few days, we’ve decided to collect our own set of pop culture Easter eggs. Plenty of other places on the internet have collected those traditional “Easter eggs” from your favorite pieces of pop culture — there are tons of articles that talk about that time that a Firefly-class ship showed up in Battlestar Galactica, that time that time that the Millennium Falcon showed up in Blade Runner, and those dozens of times that Han Solo in carbonite can be seen in Firefly itself. So instead, we decided to collect some of our favorite delightful little snippets of the internet: a set of eclectic Easter eggs to make your week more fun and colorful.

A Gospel Cover of the “Ballad of Serenity”

The Flash stars Jesse L. Martin, Carlos Valdes, and Rick Cosnett made a gospel a capella cover of the theme song to Joss Whedon’s much beloved sci fi hit Firefly. It’s pretty cunning.
