Friday Frivolity

You've probably already seen this video of the Barack-roll, but how about this one: Rick Astley "Rick-rolling"* the entire Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!

*In case you need a refresher (courtesy of Wikipedia): Rickrolling is an Internet meme typically involving the music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song "Never Gonna Give You Up". The meme is a bait and switch: a person provides a Web link that he or she claims is relevant to the topic at hand, but the link actually takes the user to the Astley video. The URL can be masked or obfuscated in some manner so that the user cannot determine the true source of the link without clicking. When a person clicks on the link and is led to the web page, he or she is said to have been "Rickrolled" (also spelled Rickroll'd).
