Original Rickroll Video Removed From YouTube!

The original Rickroll video has been removed from YouTube. It had almost 70 million views after it was first uploaded some seven years back and had been used to Rickroll, you guessed it some 70 million times.

There is no information on why the video was removed. But the Vevo version is still up. Guess the Copyright devil kicked-in.

For some of you who are wondering what is Rickroll, it is video song of Astley’s 1987 pop hit “Never Gonna Give You Up”, if you are watching the video when you expect something else you have just been Rickrolled.

It seems very unlikely that Rick Astley himself is to blame for letting us down. Labels and songwriters — not performers — are typically behind requests to remove videos from YouTube on copyright claims. According to Billboard, YouTube has not yet commented on the takedown.
