With every element on the page becoming just like the old computer command screen and you can still navigate around as it has all features that of the original Youtube layout. To achieve this just use a ‘/’ in front of any search term on Youtube or click here if you are lazy.

Let’s take weapons and our mission is to save the video we are watching. First just click on any white screen around the video and type in 1980 while watching the video. Just be sure you are not typing on the search bar. Want some intense action type in 2300 and start playing the Missile Command.
Be aware if you fail, then the video will be destroyed by the heavy missile attack.
