As with several other games, the Just Dance series is no exception to having its own Easter Eggs. Here, you can browse through all the Easter eggs which Ubisoft has so kindly put in the Just Dance series.
What defines an Easter Egg?
An Easter Egg could be anything - something that unlocks additional content, "cameos" from dancers outside from their own song; really anything that can be considered "secret" or "bonus" content. They could even be beta elements (although this page should be left for the best of beta elements as there are already pages for that). Also, see songs with the title in the background for more Easter Eggs.
Just Dance 2
- Viva Las Vegas takes place in what seems to be a desert. Coincidentally enough, Las Vegas is an oasis in a desert.
- Raving Rabbids began their cameos in this game with appearances in When I Grow Up and Here Comes the Hotstepper.
