Did Rick Astley Rick-Roll a Guy While Making the "Never Gonna Give You Up" Video?

October 29, 2018

Being annoyed by Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" is NOT solely a phenomenon of the Internet age. It's been going on since the very beginning, more than 30 years ago.The first recorded incident of Rick Rolling happened during the making of the video.

On the "Graham Norton Show", Rick said, quote, "There was a guy when we recorded working through the night, who kept shouting through his window, 'Will you shut the [eff] up!'" Rick also said the video wasn't "styled" he just, quote, "turned up with a bunch of clothes in a bag." But sadly, he does NOT know where that trench coat is. Years ago, a fan just took it right off his back during an event, and it disappeared into the crowd. (Here's video.)
