If you enter a code on the Bank of Canada's website, it starts playing "O Canada" and tiny $10 bills start raining down from the top of the page.

Although the Konami Code started as a cheat in classic video games like Contra, web developers have been using it as an inside joke online for years (including on BuzzFeed's homepage).

A Bank of Canada spokesperson told BuzzFeed Canada that the web team included the Konami Code as "a fun way to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation."
