"Rickrolling" is an Internet prank to trick people into watching a video clip of Rick Astley's song, "Never Gonna to Give You Up." If someone was tricked into watching the video, they were Rickrolled.
YouTube is most often used for the prank, since it is easy to find clips of Rick Astley and easy to disguise them as something else.
