White House Rickrolls Twitter Followers Links to Rick Astley feed in official tweet By John Johnson, Newser Staff Posted Jul 27, 2011 6:04 PM CDT 3 comments Comments The White House rickrolled its Twitter followers today. (Twitter) (Newser) – OK, so they may be a year or two (or three) late from the peak of the trend, but the White House Twitter feed got in a little "rickrolling" action today. In response to this tweet from someone complaining that the press briefing was a little dull, the White House responded: "Sorry to hear that. Fiscal policy is important, but can be dry sometimes. Here's something more fun." The link led to Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up video. If you need to relive the Astley glory, follow the Huffington Post link for the video. Or click to watch one of the more imaginative rickrolling examples.
