Google Nexus S Prize Puzzle #1

Today google began a Nexus S prize puzzle. From today to Dec 16, each day a puzzle will be announced by the twitter account @googlenexus at 9am PST. The first one who answered that and eligible for this prize will get a free Nexus S! Sounds sweet.

The 1st puzzle is as below

Puzzle Challenge #1: Find the treat hiding in http://www.youtube.com/googlenexus

The answer is CREAMPUFF.

Explanation: during this video, all phone screens are clickable. There are 9 clips in total, which lead to 9 hidden “behind the scenes” video of this video. In each “behind the scenes” video, there is another clickable area, which needs some effort to find (a tip is use the “Show Redraw Regions” of Flash debug player to help, however it’s not very difficult to find anyway, as long as you realize it). Each of them will lead to a webpage showing a letter. The 9 letters can form the word “CREAMPUFF”.
