just in case you missed the macy’s parade moment everyone is talking about


This is the best version I’ve seen. It came from MartiMcKenna on Twitter.

  1. And I am thrilled that they started out singing the theme to “Rob and Big.” (okay, the theme to Courtship of Eddie’s Father, but I like to think it was more of a nod to “Rob and Big.”)
    Best parade RickRoll ever.

  2. I cannot stop laughing. As soon as the record skipped and the song came on, that was it for me. Thanks for sharing! (OT: I’m watching “I Love The New Millenium” on VH1, and I just saw you discussing the Siegfried and Roy incident with the tiger. Tell me something: Why the hell did they decide not to wait until the damn decade was over for this?)

  3. Mother FU****. I had gotten to this point in my life without being Rickrolled. Betrayed!
    Boy, I’ll bet he’d given up on hope of working again.

  4. Come on! It’s not Rickrolling if the fracking network announcers know it’s going to happen ahead of time. I believe this marks the point at which Rickrolling officially jumps the shark. It will never be cool again.

  5. I work with the CN marketing guy who nurtured this crazy idea from the very start. I’ll admit I had my doubts — is Rickrolling too obscure? Has its time passed? Will the CN execs even get it enough to give the green light?
    But, man, did he pull it off.

  6. Awww… I saw the float and said “just another children’s float” and LEFT THE ROOM!!! I can’t believe I missed it! Thanks for the linkage.

  7. I hadn’t even heard about it (not so surprising considering that I’m in Japan, I suppose), so you totally got me (again)! I have to add my bravo to the biggest live rickroll I’ve ever seen, and note that, to my amusement, I was first RickRolled here by one of Wil’s posts some time ago. Aww, memories :)
