To trick someone into watching a Rick Astley video, commonly used on gaming forums when asked for proof of a game/movie trailer or any other type of video evidence.
I asked bob to see the Halo 3 trailer but instead he Rick Rolled me.

Ok so it basically means you got tricked into thinking you would watch a good or bad vid. People do this because well the singer of this was kind of off key i guess. But i personally like this song.
Hey, come check out this cool vid. *looks at it but sees rick astley* HA YOU JUST GOT RICK ROLLED SONNN!!!!!!!

Originally, to trick someone into watching the extremely catchy "Never Gonna Give You Up" music video by the genius Rick Astley with a fake link (usually with the promise of an exclusive video).

Now used in a more general sense, for any sort of deception or trick.
"I asked for the newest Halo trailer and all I got was the Rickroll video."

"I really hope that J.K. Rowling hasn't rick rolled us with all this Dumbledore business. I would be so disappointed."

"I just rick rolled that guy into singing Evanescence at the top of his lungs in the middle of a Walmart by promising him a reward of $20,000."

<html>Being tricked into clicking on a link secretly leading to a video of "Never gonna give you up" by Rick Astley. It's speculated that being "Rick Roll'd" originated from Brooks Dyer of Hermon, Maine. (Distant relative of Rick Astley, famous in Maine) See his homepage <a href="">here</a> </html>

a video on you tube or another type of video source with a title that people will definitely click on. This will get the user plenty of views. Like new Lil Wayne, PS4, touchscreen psp, New Soulja Boy Dance, brand new cell phone, etc. Then about 5 seconds later a video comes on with some white guy singing (not 1/2 bad) which gets annoying as hell.
I was searching for new Lil Wayne and got Rick Rolled multiple times today.
