You have no idea how happy I was when I saw Rick Astley on that parade float. It made the hours of preteen warbling so worth it.

I have to say that i loved that! I started singing along and my husband just rolled his eyes. :)

I enjoyed it too-- and my kids heard it blaring from the speakers and came in to see what was up!

Why is this song so popular lately? (Aside from the obvious, which is that it's cheesy perfection!) I saw a YouTube clip with Obama and McCain singing along but have a feeling that I missed the first part of the joke. Do you know how it started?

I can't believe they did it in the parade. That might be the end of rickrolling as we know it, haha.

Thanks! Very funny! I had no idea this was such a big phenomenon-- how could I have missed all this?
