Rick Astley Rick Rolls The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade...In Person!

Okay, this is seriously the best Rick Roll ever. In the middle of the Foster's puppets performing on the Cartoon Network float during this morning's Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in New York, f-ing Rick Astley jumped out and lip-synced about a minute of "Never Gonna Give You Up."

I have faith in the fact that Rick woulda done it live had they given him more time than that. In fact, I'm putting all my faith in Rick Astley. He Rick Rolled America bigtime. He is God.



Rick, please do this at the State of the Union address! And Barack Obama's inauguration! The Oscars! My birthday party!

Oh, yeah...Miley Cyrus was there, too. That bitch only wishes she had a jam like "Never Gonna Give You Up" in her repertoire.

    Awww, I saw Miley, but I never saw Rick. Crazy! Did you hear that the Energizer Bunny float got loose?

    Brilliant!!
    ...and this is how after last night's embarrassing fiasco, a bunch of puppets and a kid's network steal the award for "Best Stunt in a Variety Show" right out of Rosie's hands.

    Rick should come back with a Freemasons produced song.

    Ms. Melismatic, No! Did it just go up, up and away, or did they snag it?

    Cristián, imagine being Rosie Rolled? Ouch.

    Shanaynay, always adding a touch of class to things.

    PG, I bet you didn't even get canned cranberries for Thanksgiving...!

    Michael, I was JUST thinking yesterday he should do a Max Martin song, a la "If U Seek Amy." Bona fide #26 hit in the U.K. chart!!!
