People Really Hate Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna Give You Up' 4k Remaster

There are very few memes as timeless as the "Rickroll." The meme, which involves Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up," is a classic prank. And today, the internet became shocked after seeing their beloved 1987 music video remastered in crisp and clean 4k. The remaster comes courtesy of Revideo, a YouTube account that remasters videos with AI for kicks. This is without a doubt their most viral effort. On Twitter, user @Ray_sho shared a clip of the spiffed up video, deeming it cursed. Though some viewers were appreciative of the makeover, many responses echoed their revulsion. We'll admit that there's a certain charm that's lost with all the fuzziness eliminated, but anything involving Mr. Astley is a joy in our books. Check out the difference between the videos (and enjoy some of the peanut gallery's responses) below.

Every once in a while, a story comes along and warms your heart. 

Someone has been going around placing "scam" parking tickets on the windshields of Asheville, NC cars that have a QR code for online payment leading to a good old fashioned Rickroll. Ah, good, clean internet fun IRL.

Unfortunately, local police and residents are pissed, probably because they don't get the joke. Transportation Director Ken Putnam was quoted as saying "it was kind of surprising to go to a link for a YouTube video, and then when I went to it, it was featuring some rock star that I didn't know who it was." Bless his heart. Apparently the culprit could be cited/arrested for littering if they're caught, so stay frosty out there, Rickroller.
