    Re: True story about Rick Roll

    I wonder why Rick Astley was picked? Why not Nickelback or Celine Dion, or Kenny G?

    I don't get the video. Was he in prison when they filmed this?

    The 80's? I thought it was of all time.

    I don't even think the song is the problem there...just the "changes" to it.

    I think Rick defined the "white guy" dance moves.

    I heard somewhere (not sure if it's true or not) that the origin is based on the fact that when radio listeners first heard Rick Astley, they thought they were hearing a soulful black man sing, but when they actually saw him, he was a skinny white dude. The premise of the Rick Roll is you think you're clicking on a link for one thing, but it's actually something else. See the parallels? Kind of a stretch, but who knows...

    After being Rick Rolled many times my favorite dance move is the scene where the black guy in really short shorts just randomly jumps up against a fence.

    Also the Rick Roll has now revitalized Rick Astley's career (well at least for one single)...
