Yes, an easter egg in the most boring application of all time: Excel.

When the easter egg starts, you're shown a outer-space 3D environment where you can fly around by moving the mouse. If you are lucky, you will locate a slab in the ground that has scrolling credits of the makers of Excel.

How freaking cool (and scary) is that?

Watch the video with annotations turned on, it will explain how it all works. For those of you who don't want to wait:

1. On a new Worksheet, Press F5

2. Type X97:L97 and hit enter

3. Press the tab key

4. Hold Ctrl-Shift

5. Click on the Chart Wizard toolbar button

6. Use mouse to fly around - Right button forward/ Left button reverse
