When you attempt to watch a video that happens not to be that video. Instead, it is a rick astley video that someone tricked you into watching.

Popular forum prank started in 2007. Someone will post a link to a Rick Astley video from the 1980s (Astley is a gay-looking pop singer from the 80s), but disguise it as a link to something else. Victims of the prank are then said to have been "rickrolled".

Rock Roll, Rick ROlled, or Rick Rolled

The process or act of posting a link or attatchment to a Rick Astley video such as "Never gonna give you up" Then by you clicking on it, you have just been Rick Rolled

Usually disguised as something else such as "Check out my new car"

Accredited to a popular car forum, bimmerforums.com often discussed as not funny and completly absurd it still has the comedic value to change any subject or lighten up the harshest of moods.
"Hey guys check out my video of my car"

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.
