    Hey everybody! Thanks for watching this video, "The Story of the Best Meme EVER: Never Gonna Give You Up & Rickrolling". Rick Astley's 1987 song, "Never Gonna Give You Up" is an absolute classic in the 80's canon. It's catchy, dance-able, and I love every second of it. But what's even more interesting than the song itself, is what happened yeaaaaaaaars down the road. From around 2005-2008, an unforgettable meme/prank was created: Rickrolling. It's a classic, bait-and-switch gag that sends an unsuspecting user to the music video for Never Gonna Give You Up. How and why did this happen? And what effect did it have on Rick? Check it out here!

One of my friends, Zach, went to boot camp earlier this year (and is now a member of the U.S. Navy, god bless him) and while he was gone, he would send letters to his sister, usually containing injokes and messages to our friend group that she'd post on our Discord server. Well, one day, he says he's been learning a bunch of ways to encode messages, wrote a couple of them down, and told her to post it on our server if she needed help. Me, being a fan of Gravity Falls as a older child/young teenager, realized one of them was a Caesar cipher. Easy enough. Piece of cake. I decoded the first word. 'Never'. Looking ahead at the rest of the cipher to see how many letters I could match up with what I had, I felt dread pooling in my stomach. I text his sister, 'I think I'm going to kill Zach when he gets back.' 'Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down.' I was very disappointed in my friend that day.
