Do a Barrel Roll – Google Easter Egg

Geoff and Fragger show you how to do a barrel roll in Google, of all places.

Do A Barrel Roll is a catchphrase used to call on someone to perform a 360 degree horizontal spin.

The latest Easter egg to appear on Google is apparently a reference to Star Fox 64, the 1997 Nintendo game, in which the character Peppy Hare orders you to Do a barrel roll! while approaching 4 stationary turrets firing lasers. You can also get it to perform if you search “Z or R twice” – the command buttons that effect the manoeuvre in the N64 game. Peppy’s phrase from Star Fox 64, Do a barrel roll!, has become a popular internet phenomenon.
