Yikes…One Billion people have been “Rick-Rolled” I didn’t even understand what it really meant to be Rick-Rolled until about two months ago. Here are the details.
RICK ASTLEY will never give YOU up, so in return, we won’t let HIM down. His 1987 hit, “Never Gonna Give You Up“ has reached over 1 BILLION views on YouTube.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever been “Rick-rolled”. For those who don’t know, “Rick-rolling” got pretty popular starting in 2009, when people would TRICK each other into clicking on the link for the “Never Gonna Give You Up” video.
Honestly, it’s surprising that it’s taken this long to reach over a billion views . . . even this year, the video gained over two million views on April Fool’s Day.
Rick thanked fans on Twitter when he heard the news. He said, quote, “That is mind-blowing. The world is a wonderful and beautiful place, and I am very lucky.”
