    This, though I'm sad I missed the music again.

    A Description of the ?Never Gonna Give You Up? (1987) Video:

    We start with a young, dweeby-looking dude in front of what appears to be a white and grey church window and behind a microphone. This is apparently Mr. Rick Astley. He?s wearing white chinos, a black and white striped Lacoste shirt, and a black blazer. He has an absurd ?conk? hairstyle...more 50's than 80's. He?s red-headed, very pale, and moves in the most white-boy way imaginable. His singing voice is considerably less weedy than you would expect.

    Quick cut to: what appears to be an underground urinal. Rick is wearing a tan trench coat (for flashing?) over black. No microphone. He?s still singing, though.

    Quick cut to: a tall blonde babe dressed in black, in front of the original church window. She twirls and poses.

    Quick cut to: Rick dressed in prison blues and shades, in front of a wire fence. No microphone. Still singing.

    Quick cut to: the blonde, now dressed in a white dress, twirling in front of a white brick wall.

    Quick cut to: Rick in the prison blues again. He has the physique of a ?before? advertisement.

    Quick cut to: Rick in long shot in front the church window, on a stage, with two blondes dancing, one on either side. Something I read on the ?net said that the director never held a shot on both the dancers because the one on the right couldn?t get the steps. This is scarcely why they hired her, anyway.

    Quick cut to: Black bartender, wearing a white shirt and great red suspenders. He?s wiping the bar. Why is there a bar in a church?

    Quick cut to: Rick and the non-dancing babes.

    Quick cut to: the bartender tosses a glass in the air and catches it. He?s moving to the music.

    Quick cut to: Rick in front of the window

    Quick cut to: Blonde babe twirling. (She does that a lot).

    Quick cut to: The urinal. More singing.

    Quick cut to: Rick and the babes.

    Quick cut to: The bartender. Dancing.

    Quick cut to: Rick and the babes.

    Quick cut to: The bartender. Dancing a lot, including flying splits.

    Quick cut to: Rick, in close up. Alas.

    Quick cut to: The undancing blonde babe, striking a pose currently immortalized in our banner.

    Quick cut to: The urinal.

    Quick cut to: Rick and the babes.

    Quick cut to: Bartender, doing the Locomotion.

    Quick cut to: Rick and the babes, dancing geekily.

    Quick cut to: The bartender, doing a headstand from behind the bar.

    Quick cut to: Rick smiling dorkily.

    Quick cut to: Blonde babe twirling, and doing the pose looking over her shoulder yet *again*

    Quick cut to: Close up of Rick?s unfortunate complexion.

    Quick cut to: Rick?s shadow, considerably more charismatic than Rick.

    Quick cut to: The singing urinal.

    Quick cut to: The blonde babe in front of the white brick wall.

    Quick cut to: Young blonde guy in white T shirt and grey slacks, shades and Hitler Youth haircut, in front of the white brick wall.

    Quick cut to: Blonde babe rolling her shoulders in front of the white brick wall.

    Quick cut to: Hitler Youth, twirling.

    Quick cut to: Hitler Youth?s pointed boots.

    Quick cut to: Rick in prison blues.

    Quick cut to: Singing urinal.

    Quick cut to: Prison blues. Rick doing the demure bit. For a wonder, he?s not singing.

    Quick cut to: The bartender, in black and white striped shirt and short shorts, bounces off the wire fence.

    Quick cut to: Prison blues. Singing.

    Quick cut to: A shadow.

    [These two shots are repeated]

    Quick cut to: Rick and the non-dancing babes, in front of the window.

    Quick cut to: Rick doing a modified flash of his blazer, so that we see stripes, as immortalized in our current banner. The audience is profoundly grateful it saw no flesh.

    Quick cut to: Singing urinal.

    Quick cut to: the bartender, doing a flip.

    Quick cut to: Singing urinal.

    Quick cut to: Hitler Youth, now wearing jeans, in the urinal. He does some dance moves that look...military.

    Quick cut to: Bartender, who does a flip on the urinal wall. [I read on the net that he was so hungover that the first time he tried it, he fell on his head.] He does a head cock at the end that?s priceless.

    So, how long are we keeping this banner up? Because as much as I enjoy Rick Rolling, it works best in moderation, and we're kind of edging out that territory here.

    harps would not oblige, so I begged Grimby, who did.

    Thank God. If I had to look at Rick Whomever just one more day, I'd have gone beserk...
