This is your requisite April Fool's post.

It is the video for “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley.

Please follow the hyperlink below and be pranked.

Thank you for your time.

@RadicalEdward Yep this one will be stuck in my head all day. ​:Cr0w:

@RadicalEdward thanks for providing me with a prank so I can now go about the rest of my business


"...and that, children, is the story of 'Radical Edward', and how Ed altered April Fool's Day forever by introducing the consensual prank, like we all do today. Who wants to dump glitter all over the school? Show of hands!"

@RadicalEdward I must confess I was a little surprised that it actually was the video and not something else (a reverse rickroll if you will)

@z @RadicalEdward I clicked just to make sure it was the actual rickroll video

@z @RadicalEdward it didn't take long for me to start recognizing the url from when it was absolutely everywhere

@RadicalEdward as salty as I've been about april fool's for the last 10 years, I would also have accepted an explicit rickroll set up that linked to trololo guy

@RadicalEdward I choose to participate

<clicks link>


Thank you for the wholesome prank!

@RadicalEdward Whenever I'm rickrolled, I just listen to the whole song. So this style of "rickroll" works for me too.

@RadicalEdward confirmed, it is Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”. thank you for your clarity.

@RadicalEdward Thank you very much. I have now consciously rickrolled my entire family.
