Rickrolling Macy's Parade

Rickrolling was taken to the largest audience yet Thursday at the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City.
Instead of a performance by the characters of “Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends,” onlookers were treated to a rendition of “Never Gonna Give You Up” by singer Rick Astley.

The switch happened on Thursday morning, during the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The puppets on the float featuring the Cartoon Network show began to sing 1970s hit and TV theme song “Best Friend,” but stopped abruptly, revealing Astley, himself, dancing and singing to his signature tune.

Now that I think about it. Nobody would have known it was actually him if they hadn't announced it. I would have just thought it was some guy with bad hair lip-syncing.

Everyone lip synchs the parade. We thought it was hilarious considering we've been rick-rolled checking out the teasers for the upcoming Nip/tuck season.
