    Default This poll is the best poll

    http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReport.aspx?g=230004be-ed20-43d6-9beb-4a2cda4a0cbe



    SurveyUSA estimates that at least 18 million Americans have now been “Rickrolled,” according to this latest national poll of 959 adults, conducted 04/08/08.

    Understanding and explaining the phenomena can be difficult, although this article is helpful. Essentially, the most common usage is as follows:

    Pranksters post links on various internet sites, in instant messages to friends, or in email that purport to direct to something of interest, but which instead link to a YouTube video of the 1987 hit by British singer Rick Astley. Originally a purely underground happening, Rickrolling has recently made significant inroads to the mainstream, possibly culminating with yesterday’s performance of the song during the 8th inning of the New York Mets home opener Tuesday afternoon.

    Baseball fans may not have cared for the song, but we thought we’d take a look, for the record, at what may end up being the very peak of the fad, and find out how many people say they’ve been Rickrolled. Nationally, the number is 6% — and multiplied out by 300 million Americans, that means at least 18 million Americans have been on the receiving end of the prank. Note that this is likely an underestimation, as the poll was unable to include those under the age of 18. Full results are here.

    I never watched the entire video all the way through... whats the point of that guy doing backflips and whatnot. So fucking random...


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    ...It's about love in the 80's. That's all it can ever be. That and an excuse for him to hate his directors in about four years from it's creations. Just in case you might like to know this, that bartender - showed up to that video drunk; and slept through most of the video.

    On a related note: I just realized I got rick roll'd.

    Ever since I started using Firefox I've stopped checking link locations before clicking them (NoScript, ftw). Maybe I should start doing so again...

    Well done my friend. XD

    Anyway, you know you've been Rickroll'd enough when you start singing "Never gonna give you up" randomly.
