What Does Rickroll Mean?

Rick Astley released a hit song, “Never Gonna Give You Up”, and people created a trick. The trick involves creating a link that redirects to the Astley song, such that when your friend expects to open your shared link and find something captivating, they end up viewing the Rick Astley song.

The aim here is to make your friends think you’ve shared a genuine link, such as a shared class assignment, but when they open the link, they realize that you’ve fooled them into viewing Rick’s song.

Getting rickrolled is annoying, and when your friend does it to you, it feels like you’ve been fooled without noticing.

You can rickroll someone on almost any platform, provided it supports sharing links, and you’ve creatively generated a URL that doesn’t hint or show a preview of Rick’s song.

Your unknowing friends will confidently click on the link, only to be disappointed.

Anyone can get rickrolled; all it requires is generating a realistic link and coming up with something unique and convincing to make someone click on the link.
