I wonder if his sales are going up because of this.

I also wonder how many people actually understood what was going on.

Ok, someone please explain what I’m missing here.

Rick must love the whole Rick Roll thing… just like Chuck Norris must love the Chuck Norris thing.

Well, shit, pays the bills, eh?

Fuckin. Hilarious. And for the haters who call it “lame” … I don’t see you doing anything that’s become a cultural phenomenon around THE WORLD … all you do is sit on a message bored and lamely state how lame it is … Stop bitchin’ and come up with something better. Wu-Tang

It is a youtube pop culture phenom. I don’t know the history behind it but when shit pops off (like that asian guy from American Idol who can’t sing but released a cd because people would buy it because he can’t sing) you jump in and try to make some quick cash.

Same here.

The people that understand it are the people that don’t watch parades.
