weird shit

Hey apparently illustrator has a less known feature to hide artboard and background. I accidentally activated this with some keyboard shortcut. How do I go back to the normal view?

You turned on the "transparent grid". You can go to View > Hide Transparency Grid or hit Command/Ctrl+Shift+D.
