This is what you say when someone asks you for important advice in their life.
Your friend: "Last night I lost everything. My girlfriend dumped me, I lost my job and I'm starting to lose my grip on reality. What should I do, man?"

You: "Do a barrel roll!"

Famous line in gaming culture, originating in the Star Fox franchise. The line is commonly associated with the character "Peppy", due to his tendency to instruct the player to perform the maneuver, commonly when a scripted ambush or similar event is occurring. Due to his insistence upon suggesting that Fox "Do a barrel roll!" in so many situations, it has come to be parodied as a panacea for all problems.
In the context of the Star Fox franchise: "Fox, it's an ambush! Do a barrel roll!"

In the context of internet communication: "I can't finish the last level of the campaign! Any tips?" "Do a barrel roll."

In Star Fox, you hit a Z or R button twice to barrel roll, which in turns, gives you a temp shield from lasers.

Also a fad saying for LUE

Comes from Starfox 64. A character would command fox to do a barrel roll in order to prevent being shot to deadness.

A barrel roll is when a fighter pilot makes his ship turn over, very quickly, in mid-air. It makes the wings harder to hit.

It's more common practice to shout this phrase at friends while they play video games. Especially if they can't do anything roll-like. The purpose is to be obnoxious, and quote old video games. Two of most peoples' favorite things.

A command spoken by Peppy Hare in Star Fox 64.

An expression for what seems to be the solution to almost every impossible situation (in other words, a way of saying there is no solution.)
Okay, so... You're in a dark room, no lights, no escape, and 3 rabid werewolves on the loose. How do you get out of THAT?" "Do a barrel roll!
