I was Rickrolled by Yahoo!

Today I was cleaning up a link list on a writer’s website I maintain. I had an old Geocities site on there so I went to it in order to see if it was still up. I went to the site, and found that it had a note from Yahoo that said “Geocities closed in 2009” and had a video of the 1987 Rick Astley song, “Never Gonna Give you Up.” I laughed so hard! People used to do that all the time as a prank. They’d trick others into clicking on links that led to that song.

How many others remember “Rickrolling?”
