    Me...when I asked something in Yahoo Answers a while back. He gave me some link (I still remember it) and when I clicked on it, I got rick rolled.

    By that time, it had pop-ups showing thre lyrics. The pop-ups show each verse so you have to keep on clicking OK to get out of it.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    EDIT: Also, how?

    About 3 weeksago, and the normal way, clicking a link I thought was something else

    Pff, you guys are still wet behind your ears!

    Before RickRolling there was DuckRolling, where they would link you to a thread with a picture of a duck with wheels on 4chan. That was my first Roll.

    As for how, I think it was just a link in IRC, probably.

    2 years ago, when someone on the internet said that Sega is making a new console.

    I clicked it, and I got rickrolled.


    One of my friends actually changed the homepage of each computer in my tech room (Around 30 computers) to the rickroll site, where it moved everywhere.
