RickRolling My Entire Zoom Class
There are two types of people in this world. The ones who do the RickRolling, and the ones who get RickRolled. If you don't know what a RickRoll is, I'll fill you in. No. It's not a roll.
RickRoll is an internet meme in which someone clicks on a hidden URL, expecting something else, and instead gets a video of Rick Astley singing "Never Going To Give You Up." This has been a hilarious internet meme for over a decade, and is especially popular among Gen-Z and even some Millennials. So back to me RickRolling my Zoom class. I got everything ready: I cued up the YouTube video, I even made a Bit.Ly of the link so no one would know what it was. Then I put the link in the chat secretly, writing "To watch later- this cool history video I found." Then, at the end of class, I ACCIDENTALLY HIT PLAY! For real! So I quickly paused it, but no one seemed to have heard! This happened like 3 times- and each time no one seemed to have heard! So finally when the teacher was done talking- I blasted it out of my other computer- no real response until I flipped around the iPad and the teacher was like "Noo! Rick Astley!" while laughing and everyone else laughed.I thought I had succeeded until I FaceTimed my friend (we'll call him Bob for this purpose) and played the video again, and when it ended I started talking- but he said "You have no sound" a few times before hung up and called back. To this moment - a few hours after it happened- I still don't know whether the sound ever played. I suppose that's what I get for trying to RickRoll my class over Zoom. Have you ever RickRolled someone? Have you ever been RickRolled? Leave a comment down below with your answer.
