Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Back in April, I posted a blog where I discussed Grandmom telling a blowjob joke to us as we left her house in Maryland. I put a link that in the blog that led clickers, who thought they would be able to see a video of Grandmom telling the joke, to a video of Rick Astley singing his infamous "Never Going To Give You Up".

This phenomenon of tricking unsuspecting internet browsers into clicking a link leading them to a destination that they might find interesting, only to be led to Rick Astley's video, has been dubbed "RickRolling".

Well, if anyone watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, you saw the majestic float that Catroon Network prepared for the cartoon "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends". And if you're familiar with the format of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, you know that the floats stop, then they talk to the people on the float, or the people on the float will sing a song.

Well, the "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends" stops and they start singing the "Best Friends" song from their show. then the music stops, and Rick Astley comes out and sings "Never Going To Give You Up"! After he's done, one of the puppets on the float can be heard saying "I love RickRolling!"

Well done Cartoon Network, well done.
