Adfreak has a note today about the practice of Rick Rolling. I guess I had not heard of it before because normally I don't click on links I receive via e-mail, especially from people I do not know.
I think it's genius, though. I can just imagine the reaction of the unsuspecting victims when they click on what they think is the latest gamer news or the hottest chicks/dudes, only to encounter this.
I watched the video, one I was very familiar with from my college years. One part of me was laughing out loud at the dorky dance moves, low production values, and questionable fashion choices. Another part of me was in sheer disbelief that I once could not get enough of this song/video. Still another part of me got all misty eyed and reminisced about the good old late 80's.
