What is RickRoll meme?
RickRolling is a prank and Internet meme in which the music video for Rick Astley’s song “Never Gonna Give You Up” makes an unexpected appearance.
The meme is a type of ‘bait and switch,’ with a hidden hyperlink leading to the music video.
Rick Roll meme origin
The bait-and-switch phenomenon began as a spin-off of an older practical joke known as duckrolling, in which an external link with a sensational title (i.e., a specific photo or news article) would be redirected to a manipulated image of a duck with wooden wheels.
