Do A Barrel Roll

Do A Barrel RollDo A Barrel Roll, “Is it a barrel” has become a trending topic on Twitter and elsewhere, thanks to an Easter Egg in Google Search.

Type the phrase into Google, and the screen will turn around (which is a barrel, after all). The same is true if the search for “Z or R twice.” If you feel lazy, you can simply click here and see the effect by itself. Because it was built in HTML5 does not work in all browsers. Firefox and Chrome seems that the best support.

Both phrases are references to Star Fox 64, the classic Nintendo game that 1997 sucked a giant piece of my life when I was a kid. Peppy, rabbit game veteran space pilot, Fox McCloud tells the hero of “cask” (a feat accomplished by pressing the “Z” or “R” twice) several times during the game. The sentence resulted in an Internet meme that has stood the test of time.

We have no idea how long Google Easter Egg has been around (we’ve emailed Google for more information), but we love it. This is another testimony to the rarity of Google nerd and behavior.
