BARACK ROLL

Okay, I'm sure everybody but me has seen this by now, I'm always a decade behind the times, but for those of you who either love or hate rickrolling, I thought Barackrolling was equally as funny. Here it is:

In case you don't know what rickrolling is, this is from Wikipedia:

"Rickrolling is an Internet meme typically involving the music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song "Never Gonna Give You Up". The meme is a bait and switch: a person provides a Web link that he or she claims is relevant to the topic at hand, but the link actually takes the user to the Astley video. The URL can be masked or obfuscated in some manner so that the user cannot determine the true source of the link without clicking. When a person clicks on the link and is led to the web page, he or she is said to have been "Rickrolled""

If that didn't make sense, please see the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rickroll

I first heard about rickrolling when suddenly my 19 year old sang "Never gonna give you up" out of the blue. I was startled to say the least, knowing his musical tastes! Then he explained to me.

A rick roll is this -- a person provides a Web link that he or she claims is relevant to the topic at hand, but the link actually takes the user to the Astley video. When a person clicks on the link and is led to the web page, he or she is said to have been "Rickrolled". Just another clever internet prank!

There was an episode of 'how I met your mother' where Neil Patrick Harris was trying to persuade the other characters to watch a video.
He fooled one of them into thinking he was getting his exam results and got him to watch the video instead (something to do with a squirrel urinating?). Now David Letterman gives us the 'monkey sneezing' ad nauseam.
There's more of this around than you know....
