Do A Barrel Roll is an catchphrase used to instruct someone to perform a 360 degree horizontal spin. It is sometimes used to caption image macros where the subject appears to be in mid-rotation, or in animated GIFs where the subject is performing a full rotation. It is often paired with the character Peppy from the Nintendo 64 console game Star Fox 64.
