Macy's Parade Gets Rickrolled

The phenomenon of Rickrolling reached its logical conclusion at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade yesterday when a happy, dancing, singing float got interrupted by an appearance by none other than Mr. Rick Astley himself, lip-syncing horribly to "Never Gonna Give You Up" with ironic glee. Watch:



The viral prank has now officially painted itself into a corner with nowhere else to go but down and out. Goodbye, Rick Astley; hello, Barry Manilow.

  2. His lip-syncing wasn't THAT bad.

  3. Maicle, I have very high lip-syncing standards. After all, all my friends are performing drag queens. :)

  4. For a pasty Brit, he actually looks okay.

  5. For once in my life I was actually relieved that it was Rickroll. I mean, who wants to hear Bloo sing an entire song about his best friend? That would have been annoying. WTG Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Great show.

  6. I can't remember. Did I have a crush on Rick Astley when I was younger?
