An internet prank has rolled through the early stages of 2008. The fine art of â€œRick Rollingâ€ has now become a sought-after trait online.
The aim is to do what ever it takes to get your friends, family, coworkers or anyone for that matter, to view Rick Astley's cheesy, '80s pop music video, â€œNever Going to Give You Up.â€
â€œIt took its name from a 4chan meme known as 'duckrolling', a prank in which someone would post a blind quote to a post allegedly relevant to a discussion that upon viewing would prove to be a non sequitur - specifically, an image of a duck on wheels,â€ according to Wikipedia. â€œSimilarly, in a rickroll a poster provides a link they claim is relevant to the topic at hand which actually takes any one who clicks it to the Rick Astley video.â€
