When Peppy Hare taught a generation how to do a barrel roll during
their time with N64 classic Star Fox 64, we never thought it would become such a
cultural touchstone. Sure, our friends and colleagues knew the
importance of barrel rolls, but now something as huge and powerful as Google has
a sly wink to the furry space opera. Just type “do a barrel roll” into the
search bar and see what we mean.
We already knew Google likes games,
but this little Easter egg confirms it again. What other wonders does Google
hold? Has anyone tried typing in “What is a man?” Did you get a miserable
little pile of secrets?
