First, the video:
Then the history [From Wikipedia]:
Rickrolling is an Internet meme involving the music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song “Never Gonna Give You Up”. The meme is a bait and switch: a person provides a Web link they claim is relevant to the topic at hand, but the link actually takes the user to the Astley video. The URL can be masked or obfuscated in some manner so that the user cannot determine the true source of the link without clicking (and thus satisfying their curiosity). When a person clicks on the link given and is led to the web page he/she is said to have been “Rickrolled”.
I thought that was pretty damn good. 😀
Update: I Twittered a Barack Roll and it was a great success! lol This is how Rick Rolls work.
What I sent: Barack Obama just got into a fist fight with John McCain! http://tinyurl.com/baracknews
