(via every bloody blog on Earth) Dateline, everyone and everywhere: August J. Pollak does the impossible – breathes life back into the rickroll:
"And now, America, what you've all been waiting to hear!" shouted the Junior Senator from the state of Illinois, as an American-flag-decorated curtain dropped behind Mr. Obama, immediately followed by the familiar opening drum beats and funk synthesizer chords of Astley's 1987 hit single, "Never Gonna Give You Up."
Pumping his fists downward in a striking motion as he spoke, Mr. Obama continued, "you just got Rickrolled, America!"
Gods, I hate you, Mr. Pollak. Why couldn't I have thought of this? Why, why, why?
I love you, too; the riffing on Cory Doctorow was priceless and dead-on, including the ending stating "it is assumed that as of press time, Mr. Doctorow is still talking."
