YOU HAVE BEEN RICKROLLED
Ahh the 1980's. They gave rise to many really bad music trends some have vanished thankfully into thin air (so who were Bros?) but then there are others that remain with us like a bad smell. One such music video is this one from Rick Astley.
Potentially the daggiest clip ever made to a catchy but overproduced tune from the evil Stock Aitken Waterman team. The red haired crooner from Lancastershire become a household name in the 1980's with this mega hit. It then faded over time and became just a vague bad memory.
But lo - the internet came along and with its ability to breathe life into things that should be well and truly dead - came an internet phenomenon where by people started to prank others via e-mail (it started on April Fools Day) urging them to open a link that they were told was fun/important/vital to their well being only to be directed to the YouTube video of the Never Gonna Give You Up clip. And so the phenomenon of RICKROLLING was born.
So here at
we have decided to accept this cultural phenomenon and share with you the pleasure of being RICKROLLED
