As today is a holiday in Canada, I wanted to try something a little different and fun on the blog today. Trust me, if you are a first-time reader, this is not typical of VOX Daily but it’s always good to shake things up now and then so I hope you’ll see the humor in this!
Are you ready for some quirky entertainment?
I wonder what Jim Henson would have thought of this!
On April Fools Day (April 1st) 2008, there was a phenomenon that took over YouTube called “Rickroll” or “Rickrolling”. Countless videos were edited to include 80s British pop singer Rick Astley’s single “Never Gonna Give You Up” causing a ruckus and many an uproar (not to mention the question of royalties!). Newscasters, celebrities and even Yoda were Rickrolled. To bring it back home to voice acting, many of the Rickroll videos were dubbed and also had voice overs in them.
Maybe you were Rickrolled last April… I know I was!
David (CEO of Voices.com) Rickrolled the Voices.com team at a company meeting once which was pretty funny. If you’ve seen the actual music video, you know what I’m talking about, and you also know those funky dance moves…
Do you have any Rickroll experiences to share?
Add a comment below on Rickrolling in general or about the Muppets Rickroll 😉
Looking forward to hearing from you!
