The Rick Rolling (definition of Rick Roll) phenomenon is no surprise to the Soupy Trumpet crew. In fact Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” is one of our favorite songs that we jam out to on the regular. One thing that I like to do when playing Halo 3 with Spanky and random douchebags is to play the song through the headset, breathe heavy and tell them I am “just getting some reps in”. The responses generally range from confusion, annoyance, and mostly homosexual slander. For my part that cracks me up, although I am provoking it. Even more funny to me is finding other jams to rotate in like “She Drives Me Crazy” by the Fine Young Cannibals or the Brian Adams Robin Hood song.Â Tay Zonday (aka Chocolate Rain guy) has a tight version of Astley’s jam too.
