These “Rick-Rolling” shenanigans have to stop.
Countless people have been duped into watching Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up.” And at first, it started as a fad amongst those finding humor in tricking people into watching the (admittedly comical) aforementioned music video. But now, as with this past April Fool’s Day, overwhelming entities like YouTube have jumped on the band wagon, and I’m vetoing any further propagation of this unsavory trend.
I want to have people confidently open my links to adorable kittens, or clips of young children innocently knocking their father in the groin during Tee Ball practice. Rick-Rolling has soiled fun internet sharing for us all. With that, I leave you with a plea: Stop Rick-Rolling. If you promise me a clip of a couple hundred Japanese prisoners dancing to “Thriller,” I’d better see it. Rick Astley said he was “never gonna tell a lie and hurt [me].” I hope you’ll do the same.
