This song has been heard more times than any other song in human history. I'm confident in saying that.
I'm pretty sure God Save the Queen has got it beat.

I could picture a dystopian cyberpunk future where a generation gap causes Rick Astley to be revered as a god and this is the national anthem or something.
Actually I think that was a Sliders episode.

In other news, the internets got the Mets to play this at Shea stadium today.

It saddens me that I've seen this video enough times to catch every change in the subsequent playthroughs.
Also, the true horror of the ending is blunted by YouTube blacking out the screen instead of leaving you with the grinning face of Rick Astley.

...let this family guy spawned meme-bortion die
Haha you think this started on Family Guy.
All Chuck Norris jokes are based on Dodgeball too.
You just out-faggotted The Flu. Congrats Adramelech.
it did start on Family Guy: when Bryan (as Rick) is performing at Peter's high school grad. That's what put this song back into view.
First recorded rickroll was the night of the first GTA4 trailer (March 29 '07). The Family Guy episode aired May 20. If there was any influence, it went the other way. Quod erat demonstrandum.
Video wise: -4 for stupid editing tricks, +2 for freaking me out a little.

I guess I'm lucky that I haven't been as inundated with the Rickroll phenom as some. +3 for the trenchcoat, though...and for the various creative real-life ways I've seen the meme used.

I don't know about happy or psycho, but this was definitely a nightmare.

Anybody who hates this meme is just a jerk. You have an insanely catchy 80s tune with an adorably lame video somehow catching the attention of the entire internet and becoming unimaginably popular.
I really can't imagine a better video for this to happen to, or would you rather live in a universe where you get "rolled" by something "cooler" like Slayer or something queer like that. Fuck off fag.
Yeah I appreciate it, but I've also seen it a million fucking times and in at least three different forms on this site alone. Plus this version fucking sucks.

It took too long for edits to be obvious. Of course maybe I just haven't watched the original enough.
|Unsung - 2008-04-08 |
I watched halfway through and shut it off. Feel free to spoil it and tell me what the hell I`m supposed to be looking for.
