    Rick was, and still is, years ahead of his time.

    It will be another decade before we understand the true impact he has made on the world.

    Okay, going to go stab my eyes out now, and ears.

    "Rickroll" Internet phenomenon

    In May 2007[2] the song's campy music video became the basis of an Internet phenomenon known as "rickrolling". It took its name from a 4chan meme known as "duckrolling", a prank in which someone would post a blind quote to a post allegedly relevant to a discussion that upon viewing would prove to be a non sequitur - specifically, an image of a duck on wheels. Similarly, in a rickroll a poster provides a link they claim is relevant to the topic at hand which actually takes any one who clicks it to the Rick Astley video. The practice eventually became widespread enough to attract some coverage in the mainstream media.[3][4]
    In connection with the online meme, "Never Gonna Give You Up" was played and performed at some of the February 2008 protests against the Church of Scientology.[5]
    To celebrate the 20th anniversary of "Never Gonna Give You Up"'s climb to #1, members of the Digg online community chimed out the lyrics on March 12, 2008. Anybody with the standard Digg setting of only showing comments -4 and higher saw the song's lyrics from "We're no strangers to love..." to the fade away verse of "Never gonna give, Never gonna give... give you up!... Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you."
