Hey Netizens, wanna see a fun element from Google?. Just goto google and type ‘Do A Barrel Roll’ in the search box and wait for the surprise. The search results page will do a barrel roll before presenting you with the results. Enjoy the rock and roll.
Google’s new Easter Egg ‘Do A Barrel Roll’ proves Google still has a sense of humor. “Do A Barrel Roll” is a catchphrase used to call on someone to perform a 360 degree horizontal spin.
The inspiration behind this is from Nintendo’s Star Fox, a video game series, in which a space pilot rabbit named ‘Peppy’ tells the character Fox McCloud to “do a barrel roll”.
The barrel roll game does not seem to function on all browsers but appears to work best using Firefox and Chrome.
A Google spokesperson said:
“Today’s fun query, ‘do a barrel roll’ was created by a Google software engineer with the primary goal of entertaining users – while showcasing the power of CSS3, a presentation feature of modern browsers. The ‘do a barrel roll’ query, which causes the search page to spin, will remain in place for a while”.
