"From the Serenity HD-DVD's main menu, highlight 'Extras' and then press LEFT twice on the remote. This will bring up a hidden Serenity logo, which will take you to the 'Fruity Oaty Good Time' featurette."

The 90 second featurette was also included as an easter egg on the standard DVD release.

In fairness, this is not the first easter egg content to be discovered in a high-def disc release -- some studios have opted to "un-hide" content that was previously offered as standard DVD easter egg content, making such content directly accessible from the menu of high-def discs, while Sony has included monitor calibration test patterns as "easter eggs" on all of their Blu-ray releases thus far.
By the way, to reveal the calibration patterns on Sony Blu-ray titles, key in the number 7669 in the main menu.
Only easter egg I have seen so far is the one on the Rundown. You can select Rundown by pressing down button in the menu. It's some Sean William Scott bit.

More Easter Eggs:

'The Benchwarmers' Blu-ray also has an easter egg. Highlight 'Special Features' and press Up 3 times. The baseball icon that appears will take you to a dumb clip of Jon Lovitz singing the National Anthem. This was also an easter egg on the DVD.

'The Italian Job' HD DVD: on the "Extras" submenu, highlight the top bonus feature option (the "Driving School" featurette), then click your remote's top-left (Northwest) diagonal button. A little van icon will appear to the right of the menu. Then click "Enter" on your remote, and you'll be taken to a five-minute outtake reel featuring actor Seth Green improvising a stream of in-character monologues.

'Friday Night Lights' HD DVD: from the disc's main menu, scroll down and highlight the "Extras" option. Then click your remote's Left button twice. A hidden 'Friday Night Ligths' helmet icon will appear. Click "Enter" on your remote, and you'll be taken to a short clip of director Peter Berg paying tribute to his long-suffering assistant.

We should note that none of the above easter eggs are HD-exclusive (each originally appeared on the standard-def DVD releases of these titles), but hey, it's a start...
