Do you know who Rick is? I am sure you do. But have you ever been Rolled" From knowyourmeme.com

"Rickrolling is a bait-and-switch practice that involves providing a web link supposedly relevant to the topic at hand, but actually re-directs the viewer to Rick Astley’s 1987 hit single “Never Gonna Give You Up.” The URL is often masked or obfuscated as a randomly-generated shortlink to conceal its true source from the experienced users. Whenever someone clicks the link and unintentionally summons Rick Astley’s song, he or she is said to have been rickrolled."


"In February 2010, a bipartisan group of Oregon Representatives planned to pull off the “Rickroll” during House sessions. Each of the participants was given a portion of the lyrics of “Never Gonna Give You Up” to subtly plug into their statements during legislative discussion. This scheme was finally revealed on April 1st, 2011, when Representative Jefferson Smith and his co-conspirators edited and uploaded a video of various representatives making their statements, put in proper lyrical order of the song."
