It's a rite of passage for anybody who has ever been on the internet to be "Rickrolled," aka, tricked into clicking a link of "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley.
The phenomenon made its way outside of the internet, too, and even made it to the likes of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Disney film Ralph Breaks The Internet.
One hell of a woman, @GretaThunberg Proud to retweet this one... https://t.co/MVDSK5Ir7f— Full Grown 💙 (@Full Grown 💙) 1617359682.0

Thanks, Greta, for your work. We ALL must do our part to prevent climate change and a climate crisis.
Including Rick Astley.
