(Newser) – The infamous (and infamously annoying) stunt known as a "RickRoll"—a Web link allegedly of interest to the recipient that actually leads to a YouTube video of Rick Astley singing "Never Gonna Give You Up"—has a sequel, E! reports: the "Barackroll." It intercuts footage of Barack Obama speeches with dance moves from his appearance on the Ellen show. Click the window on the left, and get the song stuck in your head, too.
