Google Easter Eggs for Query Refinements

Google is a big fan of "Easter Eggs", which are fun tricks they attach to certain search queries. Some of these only last for specific holidays or trends, but others are permanent additions to Google search. Recently Google has allowed query refinements for these easter eggs. Simply put, now you can get the same effects for any search. 

To use this, simply type the easter egg into the search box, then type your personal search into the search box and your new results will show with the same effect as the easter egg! Below are three that I know of, enjoy!

"Blink HTML"


"Do a barrel roll"

Have fun in the office with colleagues that may not know about these tricks, and get them confused!

Do you have any tricks to add or more creative queries for these effects? Let us know in the comments!
