What happens when you click on a link/video, thinking it's something of interest (like porn, free online movie/show, or something your friend recommended), but it leads you to the music video for Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up".

This trick is pretty common because the video or link looks promising with an according title and thumbnail.

(NOTE: Very common on Youtube)
Man 1: "Hey dude, I'm sending you this link to this killer porn site! Best ever!"

Man 2: "All right!" (clicks on link)

(Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" plays)

Man 1: "Dude! You just got Rick Roll'd!)

One of the most annoying internet pranks ever. Epic if you're the one pranking. You either are sent the link, thinking it's something interesting ... or clicking on a YouTube video to see something titled completely different; and then you randomly see Rick Astley's 80's video "Never Gonna Give You Up".
Jen: "Holy this looks JUST like you!"
Erin: "Really, what does?"
Jen: "Just click this link!"
Erin: "OH MAN! I JUST GOT RICK ROLL'D!"

Telling someone to see a video of Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" when you tell them it is something they will be interested in, such as an amazing car race, a violent train crash, or a music video with me in it. Their reaction will most likely be confused or angered. Nontheless, it is hilarious, i encourage you to rickroll someone this moment.
Man you just got rickroll'd so badly!

A popular "made you look" style game played within the World of Warcraft community forums through a humorous 80's music video by Rick Astley. Whenever a thread or topic goes sour or steers of topic or even just for fun, players will post the link to the music video and everyone who clicks to watch it, has been "rickroll'd".

The video is filled with bad 80's dancing, clothes and hairstyles.
Example as if played out in the priest forums.

Priest 1: OMFG PRIESTS NEED TO BE BUFFED

Priest 2: http://tinyurl.com/2g9mqh

Priest 1: damn...I just got Rickroll'd...

Priest 3: $%@^#$%$%#&%!!!!omg i did too...i have been rickroll'd....i suck :(

Priest 2: BUAHAHAHA!!!! noobs
