When someone deliberately links to the Rick Astley music video of "Never Gonna Give You Up" via youtube on internet forums. Originally popularized in the World of Warcraft community forums, it has spread to many other forums across the internet.

It can be either a straight link or come with a deviating description prior to the link. When someone clicks on it, they are "RickRolled"

Also known as /RickRoll, RickRoll'd, Rickrolled, etc.

A Rick Roll is a link to the Rick Astley music video "Never Gonna Give You Up", which is posted in the middle of a discussion. People click the link and are directed to the video, and are thus "Rick Rolled".

However, a Rick Roll is also a sex move, in which the man (who may sometimes be called Rick) lies on top of the woman (who may sometimes be called Roll) and they lock into each other and roll back and forth on the bed. This move is generally performed while listening to "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley.
"Yeah, I totally got Rick Rolled last night by some babe."
"I got Rick Rolled twice in under ten minutes."
"I love it when I get Rick Rolled."
