Have You Been Rick Rolled?
The latest Internet prank involves sending someone a link to a video that sounds promising – something you can’t wait to see (like Whitney Houston ACTUALLY smoking crack, or Britney having her latest meltdown). But, when you click on it, you end up here where you are subjected to what is surely one of the most cheeseball music videos every created.
As of this posting, the video has been viewed 8,119,804, with 29,048 comments.
Not that’s viral. 🙂
In an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of this prank, there is even a website www.YouGotRickRolled.com which features advertising and an explanation of where it originated.
