Overview

Rick Astley himself dancing to the Rick Roll.

A Rick Roll is a trap involving an amazing, yet bullshitty lie (like, lets say, having Leon S. Kennedy who's most famous for being in Resident Evil 4 become a playable character in Killer 7 as an example) to lure unsuspecting people to the Rick Astley video "Never Gonna Give You Up". Rick Rolling fell out of style around 2010 and is not seen very often anymore. If you are daring, you can watch it below.

Recently, this song has been getting mash-ups by other bands and musicians, such as Michael Jackson with his Bad song and Nirvana with their Smells Like Teen Spits Spirits song. Barack Obama has also done a cover called the "Barack Roll".

Facts

  • The time it takes for you to click away when being Rick Roll'd is your Rick Roll reflex.
  • The biggest Rick Roll of all time happened at the 2008 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and was done by none-other-than Rick Astley himself. During the parade, the Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends float began with a song about friendship before the music stopped and Rick Astley stepped out and sang "Never Gonna Give You Up" in front of millions of people watching the parade in New York and on TV.
  • There is a form of a Rick Roll that was made by Communists, called "Я очень рад, ведь я, наконец, возвращаюсь домой".
    • This form of Rick Roll is called by some as "Communist Roll'd", and it is competing with the original Rick Roll.
  • In 2010 and 2011, a bipartisan group of legislators in the Oregon state senate conspired together, and subtly rick-rolled the state senate by including lines of the song in their speeches. The scheme was revealed when they posted a video of each line, in lyrical order.
