"Never Gonna Give You Up" (Pop-Up Version) by Rick Astley

Birthday wishes go out today to Rick Astley, and a special treat - the version of the video as it appeared on VH-1's Pop-Up Video! If you're like me, you were one of approximately 18 million people who fell victim to rickrolling since May 2007; the fact that he was far from offended - in fact, he was greatly amused to have been the subject of his very own Internet phenomenon - singles him out as pure class.

Here then is the song that got the rick rolling, as it were: Never Gonna Give You Up, which originally appeared on his 1987 album Whenever You Need Somebody.
