Wow. Clever and overly complicated. I love it.

Im sick of this Fad.

Ah the RickRoll, it never seems to quite disappear does it? Don't know why but I still laugh at it when it happens.


/Got RickRoll'd at my own wedding a month ago
//Friends had the DJ interrupt the father/daughter mother/son dance
///Hilarity did ensue, slashies ftw

That is hilarious!

Not really. Had he planned the whole thing from the start with intricate clues leading to the Rick Roll it would have been impressive.

Instead it was, "People are reading my site? HAHA RICK ROLLED. HAHA PWNED"

Rickroll thread!

Here's part of a women's college basketball game.

That headline is false. The levels of smug at MetaFilter are unable to go any higher than they were before this happened.

Damn it. I think I did it wrong. I should have said, here is a video interview of the guy that did it.

The Amazon rickroll was pretty good.

As someone who has participated in an ARG in the past, I would have paid top dollar to see the looks on some of the guys' faces when they saw that RickRoll.

I bet you could see their souls escaping their sad bodies. What a good laugh.

I'm partial to Scary Roll.

Rickroll is the only big Internet fad I can never tire of. I nearly made it my ringtone.
 
2008-06-26 1:02:14 PM  
If you read the last four pages of the SA forum thread (linked in the article), you can feel the buildup and immediate letdown. It is beautiful, in a sadistic sort of way.

Jesus Christ people LEAVE YOUR HOMES NOW AND THEN. Go to Applesbees, attempt to hit on the waitress. Go to the local park and do your fake swordfighting thing. FOR GODS SAKE MAN GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!

For the liters,

On 4/9 a LG 42LG50 42" 1080p LCD HDTV was listed for $149.00 . Some kind soul posted a TotalFark thread about the price mistake, many people placed an order.

The orders were canceled and money refunded on 4/10.

Holy smokes, another one: $0.99 Stereo on Amazon

That was a good Rickroll that also has a count.

Sorry, posted before finishing the format (preview is a wonderful tool).

On 4/11, the thread was made:

Holy smokes, another one: $0.99 Stereo on Amazon

With the following link:

That was a good Rickroll that also has a count.

The basement stairs lead to strange and frightening places beyond goon ken. We shall not ascend.

this was a triumph
 
2008-06-26 1:19:04 PM  
Ive been rick rolled by Goons on several occasion in this game I play online. Its nice to see people getting them back. although in the game we are killing them anyhow.
 
2008-06-26 1:21:31 PM  
Page 21 in the SA thread is where it all falls apart, and I started laughing so uncontrollably I had a crowd of 4 people around my desk. It was awfully hard to explain to them why that was so funny.

I'm partial to the Muppet Roll as well, although now I'm thinking that whoever did it should have replaced Beaker's "meep"s with Brian from Family Guy saying "And now here's a song by a gay guy..."
 
2008-06-26 1:42:31 PM  
I've seen it and I have to say - I simply don't get it. Why is it funny?
 
2008-06-26 1:53:46 PM  
haha! Suck it g00ns!

And as one creating a very involved ARG, this is defintiely a holy shiat funny moment.

As annoying as rickrolls are, that. is. farking. awesome.

one of the best rick rolled IMO
 
2008-06-26 3:17:59 PM  
The whole Rick Roll thing is not funny - never has been - never will be.

Kil it with fire.

IIRC, the guy sitting down at the table with the headphones on and Gatorade jugs in front of him is a Farker and was in on it.

I'm not exactly a fan of the rickroll, but a good one is funny and since I was on the unfiction forums trying to play the game...the fact that it led to a rickroll is just full of win.

/I'm still laughing, wiping tears out of my eyes.
/Too bad it wasn't actually an ARG, those notes were really creepy and I was hoping that the payoff would be good.

OK, guy that posts on Fark with a SpyVsSpy handle.

And The Goons take the joke better than any other group on the internets, save the occasional Fark thread at like 3am. Makes me want to give Lowtax another $10. Or probably $40 after I bought my way through obligatory bans.

I think a cake-roll would be much better.
