Quote by Wikipedia
Rickrolling is a prank and Internet meme involving the music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song "Never Gonna Give You Up" written and produced by Mike Stock, Matt Aitken, and Pete Waterman known as Stock Aitken Waterman. The meme is a classic bait and switch: a person provides a Web link they claim is relevant to the topic at hand, but the link actually takes the user to the Astley video. The URL can be masked or obfuscated in some manner so that the user cannot determine the true source of the link without clicking (and thus satisfying their curiosity). By extension, it can also mean playing the song loudly in public in order to be disruptive.[1] A person who falls for the prank is said to have been "Rickrolled".


tl;dr= Too long; didn't read.

Videos on youtube etc. that are titled something exciting that makes you want to see it, but the actual video is just Rick Astley doing his **** dance

A Rick Roll

(Mods, I can't get banned for this, can I? He asked!)

And tl;dr is a shortened version of a long piece of text.

EDIT: Ok so that link didn't work. I'm having trouble finding an example of the time that moves around and appears with the lyrics when you try to close it.

EDIT 2: Well yeah JOJ but I've been trawling google and still can't find that non-closing type, which is annoying, because I thought that was hilarious, even when I fell for it. He asked though, it shouldn't be a problem, right..?
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I wouldn't take the risk, man. I'd take the video down.. if he wants to know what it is, he can type it into google.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Google "internetseriousbusiness.com" to find an example of a Rick Roll.

EDIT: Nevermind, the website has been changed.

No, you typed it wrong.

Sorry, but because you listen to Tool doesn't mean you're intelligent.

Does anyone else think Rick Astley looks like a pedo in the video when he's dancing around, late at night in that trenchcoat?

Ok, this is a warning as a feeble attempt to avoid being reported for what i'm about to do. The following link is a rickroll and no, not a crap youtube one. This one will make your browser smaller then move around the screen. When you press exit it will have a message. When you press the "OK" button it will have another message. And another. To get out of this quickly hold down Alt then press F4 repeatedly till you come to a message with two options: Ok and Cancel. DO NOT PRESS F4 AGAIN BECAUSE IT WILL SELECT THE CANCEL OPTION AND YOU@LL HAVE TO DO IT ALL AGAIN!!! Press OK.

I think that is a fair amount of warning.

Here is said Rick Roll

I hate the one that opens about a thousand windows with the video in each of them. The sound gets slights out of sync and sounds like death, not to mention fucking my speakers up.

I have XP....

and the video that's supposed to be there says "no longer available"

It's just a blank youtube player jumping around my screen.

It works on mine. Maybe trying to install XP onto a linux was a bad idea.

Sorry, don't have a link anywhere.

And I don't wanna look it up, the last (and only) time I fell for it, it made my ears bleed and infuriated me to such a level that I threw my cat into the road.
