A method in which a prankster makes a fake link to the music video of Rick Astley's Never going to give you up. To be rick rolled is to be the victim, rick rolling is the act of being the predator. The prank is considered funny because of the horrible dancing in this music video. Sometimes the bar tender is seen to be funnier. Over one million people have been rick rolled and counting.
Hey guys lets go rickrolling on the our favorite video game forums, they'll get a kick out of this!

The Rick rolling of 2016 stems from a popular Netflix show called Trailer Park Boys. one of the main characters "Ricky" has a system for getting out of trouble and it's called "Rick Rolling"

When Rick rolling someone the best way to do it is make the person who's going to get you in trouble feel stupid or confuse them they both work. then once they are clueless you tell them a bullshit excuse and they agree with you because they're confused and then they have been successfully Rick Rolled. (JRL)
(Person about to get Rick Rolled) What the fuck are you doing, are you stealing car parts?

(Person RickRolling) I am just fixing up the car, what the fuck are you doing you may as well get out of here because you look suspicious are you the one that has been stealing the car parts?

(Just got rick rolled) No I'm not stealing the car parts and good luck fixing your car I'm sorry I bothered you

To post a misleading link with a subject that promises to be exciting or interesting, e.g. "World of Starcraft in-game footage!" or "Paris Hilton blows Busta Rhymes' dick" but actually turns out to be the video for Rick Astley's debut single, "Never Gonna Give You Up". A variant on the duckroll. Allegedly hilarious.
...so instead of getting to beat off to footage of Ann Coulter getting raped by hyenas, I got rickrolled. What a day!

Similar to the Duckrolled internet fad that was around about a year ago. Rickrolled is generally used on forums, message boards, or IRC. You click a link expecting to see something relating to the thread, and instead it takes you to the Rick Astley music video "Never gonna give you up".

Popularized by the SomethingAwful and World of Warcraft forums in March of 2007, it's starting to disperse onto more websites as of May.
Someone posts a thread that says "check out my new car", when you click the link it takes you to a YouTube video of Rick Astley's "Never gonna give you up" music video. To which you usually reply with a derogatory remarks or "RICKROLLED."
