    I've been RickRoll'd a ton lately....but I've learned that the iPhone is GREAT for RickRolling people on the go.

    I literally just RickRoll'd everyone in a meeting I was just having....good times, good times.

    I don't think it counts if you knew that it was a Rick Roll link.

    IFor me i' say twice. Once the original Rick and the second was a family Rick Roll.

    I think it's the peculiar interaction of the high-waisted, pleated, pastel trousers with those dance moves that really gets to me!

    P.S. I rickrolled someone today. :)

    :)

    thats a rickroll. getting a link to what you think is one thing and it ends up just being a link to Rick Astley's "Never gonna give you up" music video.

    EDIT: actually this wiki entry should give you more info.

    Well, I think after a Family Guy episode where the dog sings "never gunna give you up" at an 80s dance, the song regained some popularity on the internet. The original "rickroll'd" was actually "duckroll'd" where someone would post a YT link and it would not link you to the topic at hand but rather to a video about the 'duckroll', hence being "rolled". So with the re-emergence of the Rick Astley song coupled with the duckroll the RICKROLL was born.

    Man I hope this doesn't last as some other internet meme's which I won't mention here for fear of them happening again.

    I have never been rickrolled and think it's dumb anyway.

    Here is an actual, non-rickrolled link to the wikipedia entry about it though... if it even deserves mention.

    Weird. A friend of mine and I were laughing hysterically at this video on youTube a few months back.

    The video at 2:07 is some of the greatest footage ever put to film.
