Watch Dogs Easter Egg Features Gangsta-Rapping Trout

What's it like to be a fish in the waters of Chicago? Find out in this NSFW video.

Warning: This video contains NSFW language. (Or maybe just use headphones.)

Just days after release, a funny Watch Dogs Easter egg featuring a gangsta-rapping trout has been discovered. As detailed in the video above (first found by the Watch Dogs Central YouTube account), when you "hack" the Singing Trout, it begins to rap about what it's like to be a fish in Chicago.

The results are hilarious. It's obviously a spoof on the popular "Big Mouth Billy Bass" animatronic prop that was all the rage in the early 2000s. Who knows what other secrets Watch Dogs has in store for us.

Watch Dogs launched on Tuesday across Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC, with a Wii U version to follow. It quickly became Ubisoft's fastest-selling game of all time. No hard sales numbers have been released so far, but Ubisoft expects it to sell over 6 million units in its lifetime--that's the same figure the original Assassin's Creed did in 2007. American conservative TV and radio host Glenn Beck recently criticized the game for promoting hacking.

This game blows, almost worse than GTAV. It seems like developers don't care about making good games anymore. If MGS5 turns out bad, I will give up on gaming, or just stick with older consoles.

So is it a trout or a salmon? I'm getting mixed signals.

What about the easter eggs about Abstergo presence in Watch Dogs and that Blume's email to Abstergo in ACIV? I find those far more interesting because it secretly links Assassin Creeds with Watch Dogs.

Also, people actually react when you photobomb them. The game is filled with a surprising amount of little details, I must say.

Not really an easter egg. An easter egg is usually something that is hidden and hard to find that ultimately reveals something or is there just for irony.


This is just sort of a gag out in the open.

That's not an easter egg. I found that stupid thing the first day I played Watch Dogs. I thought it was a spoof of the McDonalds fish.

Sounds like mc chris.  Also better than 90% of the in-game music.

@cowbellkid We got Billy Bass and now a trout in Watchdogs, but despite CoD's fish AI I don't know if there is a cod in CoD.

@Fire_Wa11 Go Winnipeg Jets! That's right. If you want a real hockey team go north of the boarder! :p







That said, I'm British and know very little about ice hockey. I think I would like it, and if I lived 'state-side' I would follow it, but it's vertually none existant over here. I just choose the Jets because their one of my main character's teams in the book I'm writing. That also said, he is canadian...

@SIDEFX1  I completely agree with you. Rap takes no talent whatsoever. The rapper can't sing. The rapper doesn't write the music or PLAY the music. They just write words that rhyme usually about the most idiotic topics possible. Rap is old and played out. I wish we would move on in the music world.

@SIDEFX1 You missing the GZA, a graduate scientist raps about science. Killah Priest, raps on history and ancient myths... you see rap can be the best teacher, wise words in a single song, and im not talking about eminem.

@SIDEFX1 Most of it is, yes. Only rapper I've ever liked is Vinnie Paz because it's not just constant bagging of money, guns, b*tches...

@Sl4cka @vibroknife In watch dogs, yes it is. He's just saying it's not hidden, you walk around with your phone out and it highlights it and says "Hack" beside whatever can be hacked. There are plenty of random things in every room that can be hacked, I've seen a talking moose head too. It isn't an easter egg, it's just funny.

@Pr0ving4Gr0undz @SIDEFX1 screamo is a very pathetic attempt at being 'demonic'. As a metal fan, i hate how screamo/emo/deathcore/metalcore kids gives extreme music a bad name, and everyone assumes I like screamo.

@Pr0ving4Gr0undz @SIDEFX1 Depends on the artist but I listen to that on occasion. But god I cannot listen to the satanic stuff where they take no breath or make any coloration of words for any part of the song.

I'm classically trained(cello, classical guitar) and I enjoy and appreciate certain types of rap.

Nothing is worse then country........country music is an abomination

@meedokicky @bldgirsh you clearly never heard rock, besides the same annoying hits played on the radio a hundred times a day. Rock is amazing, you just dont know it.
