Still never gonna give you up.

Rick Astley is not just the focal point of rickrolling—one of the Web’s most enduring memes—he’s one of the masters of doing it to other people. 

The ’80s pop star stopped by the Danish radio show Go’Morgen P3 (Good Morning P3), where he found out that rickrolling was still very much a thing in Denmark. 

Astley, who has long embraced the absurdity of rickrolling people on the Internet, popped into a live radio studio for what might be the first IRL rickroll.

Let’s hope those DJs don’t stumble on twerking or the Harlem Shake anytime soon.
