We found the only Rick Astley video worse than the Rickroll
What’s worse than Rick Astley or Chumbawamba? Rick Astley and Chumbawamba.
No doubt, the three worst songs of the last 30 years are Chumbawamba’s “Tubthumping,” Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up,” and anything that’s been released by Avicii. It makes sense that someone on the Internet’s combined the three into 4:26 of absolute sonic hell.
That someone’s known on YouTube as NilsOfficial, and he’s surely not got our best interests in mind. Last week, he published a video that mashes up the three aforementioned entities with a collection of clips that find black TV characters—Turk from Scrubs, Will Smith’s character from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air—dancing like idiots to this horrible, horrible cutup.
At some point later in the song, we’re even subjected to a dancing scene from John Travolta’s Michael.
And one from Saturday Night Fever.
Many are hailing it as Rick Astley’s 2014 comeback—more 161,000 people have watched the clip so far. We’d rather endure a Rickroll.
