The Top 7... GTA IV Easter eggs (so far)

If you played GTA: Vice City Stories, you probably remember the incessant, disturbing radio ads for Little Lacy Surprise, a line of sexy lingerie for little girls. And if you browse through the in-game internet in GTA IV, you'll eventually stumble across a link to, announcing that the makers of the morally indefensible underwear have launched a child beauty pageant.


There's nothing creepy on the site, though, so relax - or don't, because the site has been replaced by a big, fat shutdown notice from the cops. They've recognized the "pageant" as the flimsy front for pedophiles that it is, and what's more, they've logged your IP address just for looking at it. You now have a five-star wanted level. Good luck getting away from that one.

These are all over the place, but most of them are so fleeting and miniscule that we've collected the ones we know about into a single entry. For example, when you're entering or leaving the first safehouse in the game, take a moment to check out the ugly graffiti by the front door. Amid the ugly scrawl are three clearly readable names: "Tommy," "Claude" and "Victor."



If this is your first GTA, those point to Tommy Vercetti from GTA: Vice City, Claude from GTA III (and/or Claude Speed from GTA 2) and Victor Vance from GTA: Vice City Stories. We're a little surprised to see Toni Cipriani and Carl "CJ" Johnson left off, but we're sure they'll turn up… like CJ does in this superquick skydiving footage during the CNT TV show "I'm Rich!:"


During that same show, you'll also see Bully's Bullworth academy referenced  (wrongly) as one of America's best schools:


And before the show comes on, you'll even see a promo for Rednecks Live!, a stock-car racing show that was inexplicably created with GTA: San Andreas:


And of course, you can also find official art from previous games interlaced with random graffiti, if you just know where to look:

(Psst! Here's where to look:)

    yeah i seen that stroller up close i had a police hummer, and 4 stars running from the cops at full speed, and hit when your going full speed you can make the stroller knock it a good distance. I see it's been a while since last post figured i'd tell people
  • golferpro - March 13, 2010 9:47 p.m.

    there is also a stroller up the hill to the right it is on it's side.
  • Gorillaman - November 20, 2009 2:01 p.m.

    In case anyone's curious, the original GTA 3 had schoolbusses full of children and a crazed domestic terrorist who wanted you to blow up buildings, those (and the world trade centers) were the only things they had to take out before they released the game (9/11 happened like a month before the game was supposed to come out) That probably has something to do with why there has never been kids in GTA. Plus some wackjob who hates kids would go set off some grenades in an elementary school and try to blame GTA for it and if GTA gets shut down permanently, that'd be the end of an important legacy to most gamers from my generation.

    what is with the Secret Room in Head Shark from Star Junction? u must drive fast with the Infernus (from Bernie) to the head Shark should be inside a room with Miniformat of Liberty City!
  • RickyV300 - July 10, 2009 6 a.m.

    when you see the stroller video pause at 9 seconds, you will see a very scary image that is supposed to be a stain...
  • PreciousDevilx - June 8, 2009 3:45 a.m.

    Try getting a cop car and blowing all the siren lights off untill you hear a weird siren, get into the car turn the siren on and enjoy the screaming car. havent tried wit ambulance nor firetruck tho. huh
  • kidliquid - April 14, 2009 2:16 a.m.

    The scream heard when the stroller is shot is Ewan McGregor's character Renton from Trainspotting. It is the scene where Rents is coming off the smack and the dead baby is crawling along the ceiling towards him, unmistakeable.
  • shawn114483 - April 11, 2009 2:16 p.m.

    u know there is a pigeon in the place where the heart is i shot a rocket at the heart and it said i killed a pigeon
  • Spybreak8 - December 15, 2008 2:15 a.m.

    Wow, I never knew this game had it's own cheat sheet in the game, that will save me some time, awesome inclusion Rockstar.
