WTF that's really him!

You couldn't get this from any other guy.
Ghost bulbs for this comment. He knows the rules, and so do I.
|tankgirl - 2008-11-27 |
best rick roll EVER.
|Ranma X. - 2008-11-27 |
Nothing like prepping a turkey to the calm sounds of the parade only to hear BA DUM BA DUM BA DUM BADUM BADUMDUM.
|dementomstie - 2008-11-27 |
He knows that he's a joke and he seems to love it!

RICK ROLLIN' PHENOM. Hopefully this will be the death of this particular meme.
At least it went out with a bang.
This is so awesome. The art form has really reached its zenith.
|Knuckles - 2008-11-27 |
No way. Just no way.
|snothouse - 2008-11-27 |
Good job, culture.
|cognitivedissonance - 2008-11-27 |
Thankgiving Day Parade, square.
Rick Astley's original persona, square.
Somehow we've perfected cubing the square.
|badideasinaction - 2008-11-27 |
And Rick Astley steps out to say "oh yeah, TOP THIS". I think he wins the rickroll sweepstakes with this.
And yeah, it's been done to death, but rickrolling when done right still makes me smile.
|Caminante Nocturno - 2008-11-27 |
You know what?
I like this song.
And so do you.
We played this song at my wedding.
After telling everyone to rise for the National Anthem.
(because it's the national anthem of the internet, you see.)
surprisingly, we are not THAT fat.
|thebaronsdoctor - 2008-11-27 |
I think Mr. Astley just won...everything.
|fluffy - 2008-11-27 |
I like how the Macy's Day Parade announcer called it "the rick-rolling phenom."
|Testicles of Doom - 2008-11-27 |
I saw this this morning on TV and I said to my wife "This will be on PoeTV before the day is out."
I'm glad you guys didn't disappoint.
What, doesn't everyone?
Testicles of Doom
If she ever tries to show me a video, I usually sigh and say "Yeah, I already saw that."
She replies, "Let me guess... PoeTV."
I had the same conversation, then someone beat me to submitting it. I checked youtube almost instantly.
|Rodents of Unusual Size - 2008-11-27 |
I don't need to see any more of this parade...everything else will be a letdown.
|kingarthur - 2008-11-27 |
This was the first thing I saw this morning. Blew my damn mind.
|JimL2 - 2008-11-27 |
I still think this is a stupid meme, but the number of CN/Turner people who had to sign off on making this happen is just stupefying.
|Hooper_X - 2008-11-27 |
That's it. It's over.
THE RICKROLL: MARCH 2007-NOVEMBER 2008. NEVER GONNA MAKE YOU CRY. NEVER GONNA SAY GOODBYE.
ETA: Pretty much the only way to top this would be the Super Bowl or the State of the Union address.
Maybe in a Bin Laden tape. Or Papal address. Hard to figure out anything more out there. But yeah, the bar is pretty high now.
alien first contact.
|Chet - 2008-11-27 |
The best part of this for me.
Search on youtube for this clip. Why do so many people video tape their TV with a fucking camera?? Some of them have it from the start, like they were just sitting around all day doing the regular old aiming the camcorder at the TV and taping while they watched.... wtf?
I have a better question. Why do people go to all the trouble of posting the same video others have already posted on the site 20 times? Did they think they were going to be the first?
|Cleaner82 - 2008-11-27 |
I think we all just assumed he stopped existing somehow in the winter of 1989.
No, everyone is just amazed when a celebrity or the media remarks about something popular on the internet, as if it's a secret underground thing. OMG, a wildly popular thing! How'd they know???
|tamago - 2008-11-28 |
Every time I think the Rickrolling meme has reached its peak, something like this happens.
|The Caffeine Kid - 2008-11-28 |
oh god yes
|Billie_Joe_Buttfuck - 2008-11-28 |
Not for shit, but I want to three-star this because of the announcer spoiling the suprise (in the actual broadcast).
|Aubrey McFate - 2008-11-28 |
I do too, Cheese.
I do too.
|theSnake - 2008-11-28 |
|Nikon - 2008-11-28 |
I loved it. I'm going to play this song at my wedding.
|dead_cat - 2008-11-28 |
It's gonna be pretty hard to top that.
|bopeton - 2008-11-29 |
|major-_-turnon - 2008-11-29 |
I started this thinking it was going to be a shitty mash up. Boy, was I wrong.
|Operation Cornflakes - 2008-11-29 |
I remember my gf sent me a text message that said "Macys rickrolled the parade!" I didn't believe it untill I saw it. Well played.
|heyitslozeau - 2008-11-30 |
fuck, i just tried to submit this.
ok dichotic, can this meme die for you now?
|imairlax - 2008-11-30 |
the scene at :53 as the camera is pulling out is pretty much unrivaled by any hallucinogens with which i am familiar
|DrVital - 2008-12-01 |
Does it bother anyone else that Rick Astley has turned into Ricky Gervais?
|chumbucket - 2008-12-01 |
singing telegram companies need to latch on to this and offer live rick-rolls to people
|And Then Explosions - 2008-12-01 |
So glad I'm the sort of dork that willingly watches the parade every year. Seeing this live was something else.
First Oprah, now Macy's. Where will 4chan strike next?

I DONT GET IT
you and flux can both eat a basket of dicks.
Add FABIO2 to the list of people who can snack on a basket of penises.
|Flux - 2008-12-08 |
happy birthday sharky!
well happy birthday!
|Quad9Damage - 2008-12-10 |
There are no words to describe how awesome this is, except perhaps "awesome."
I just hope he wasn't lip-syncing.

REAL LIFE RICKROLLING. It's the next big thing. Board meetings, weddings, state dinners, big money bar mitzvahs: Anywhere people are willing to blow ten grand on a weird inside joke, Risk Astley will be there, LIVE AND IN PERSON, to unexpectedly interrupt the proceedings with a rendition of his vaguely remembered hit song.
"If there are any present who object to this union..."
"WE'RE NO STRANGERS TO LO-o-OVE..."
"The board has called this meeting to address some recently discovered accounting discrepencies in...."
"YOU KNOW THE RULES, AND SO. DO. I..."
