Rickrolling with Firefox

Poor ol’ Rick Astley has never been as popular as he has been in the past few weeks. Thanks to the new Internet prank of “rickrolling” millions of people have listening to his song. Probably more so than listened to it in 1987 if I had to guess. If you have your Firefox handy you too can get in on the fun.

RollTube is the first one the list, after installing this addon it will switch every video on YouTube with the infamous video of Rick shaking his funky white stuff. Here it is in action:

If all this Rick Astley love isn’t doing it for you, and your more annoyed than amused by it all then I have an addition to Firefox to help you out as well. Pick up the Rickroll Database. This is a filter you can setup your AdBlock Plus to subscribe to. You can also submit your own rickrolling videos to the database to make sure nobody else gets fooled by it again.

Just remember, here on Firefox Facts we’ll never give you up or let you down either… promise!
