Rick Rolled By Mad Men

I found this strange video on YouTube which had to take a lot of needless work. Somebody pieced together one-word clips from the show "Mad Men" to string together Rick Astley's 1987 hit "Never Gonna Give You Up."

Essentially, we've been Rick Rolled by Mad Men.

For those unfamilar with the term, "rick rolled" means to trick people into clicking on a link that takes them to the chirpy "Never Gonna Give You Up. " It also means to play the sticky sweet song at highly inappropriate moments. Rick rolling quickly became an Internet cliche.

To make this Mad Men Rick Roll video, it must have taken months to comb through episodes of the show to find the words and edit them. At least the show is good. But I hope whoever made this video  was paid well. It had to be incredibly tedious to put it together.

At least the video itself isn't tedious, but it is an acquired taste. See for yourself:
