  1. I did the biggest Uncle Miltie double take when I saw this yesterday morning but I agree: great. Absurd and crazy and nuts but great — just like Foster’s.

  2. I have to say, I loved seeing a live Rickrolling in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade of all places. The funny part for me, though, was having to explain to my wife what Rickrolling was.

  3. Rickrolling is like office humor without the office. Start explaining it and you realize how out of whack your life is because of that damn Internet.

  4. Ah… I get it… it’s like “Freebird” for the Internet.

    Mr. Astley looks quite good for his age. And kudos for Foster for adding something hip and somewhat unusual to the Macy’s Parade!

    Of course, this pales next to World of Warcraft “The Internet is for Porn” music video.

  5. Something this random, that was purely and odd internet in-joke… making it this far into mainstream… personally I just think thats pretty cool.

  6. Something this random, that was purely and odd internet in-joke… making it this far into mainstream… personally I just think thats pretty cool.

  7. Short of the Obama inauguration or the the realization of a two-state solution in Israel/Palestine, I think this is pretty much the end of Rickrolling when you’ve got Rick himself pwning millions of viewers.

  8. Unfortunately, during the live broadcast, the commentators almost ruined it by announcing that it had a “musical surprise” before the performance. Still amusing, though I agree with Brian Jacoby.

  9. Wouldn’t it have been better if he had interrupted another performer on the float?
    Or if the announcers had announced a different name?
    Other great moments… The Cat In The Hat crashes into a street light, causing it to crash onto the crowd below… While being tested at the storage facility in New Jersey, the Superman balloon escapes… the Ask Jeeves server crashes as confused viewers wonder why that balloon is floating in the parade…

  10. Personally,…I don’t see demeaning the venerable American art of lipsyncing just because someone doesn’t do it particularly well. It was good enough for the Beatles, god dammit,…and it was good enough for the Rolling Stones!
