RickRoll'd

Never thought Rick Astley would ever gain such big popularity as he once had with the song "Never Gonna Give You Up" back in the late 80's. Recently he got Rick-Rolled as his video appeared under various popular links which lead to the "Never Gonna Give You Up" video. The video has been watched over a million times on YouTube and it also appeared in various situations on the main theme.
Astley himself has spoken about the phenomenon, telling the LA Times: "It's a bit strange to have videos of when you were a young guy out on the internet. It makes me laugh - I'm sure it annoys a lot of other people.
"It's a bit spooky. It's just one of those odd things when something gets picked up and people run with it. That's what's brilliant about the internet."
