Cleveland-based web developer Will Smidlein thought he would poke around with Vine's code seeing as it was just released on the Android platform.

To test his meddling, Smidlein posted the full-length version of "Never Gonna Give You Up" to Vine, which technically only allows user video posts to be 6 seconds or shorter. It wasn't long before Twitter, creators of Vine, had one of their engineers contact Smidlein directly and asked him to please remove his video, as it was causing some "technical difficulties." Smidlein promptly deleted the video and was rather apologetic about the whole situation:

Don't feel too bad, Will. The engineers probably shouldn't have pushed such easily breakable code in the first place.

I wanna meme the very best, like no Spider ever was. To win the bracket is my real test; to shame him is my cause.

Here we go, the final battle (of this bracket)! Is Rickroll a more classic meme than Spider-man? Facebook shares will be our gym badges!

Rickroll moves forward when you share it more than Seems Legit. These are just world true facts.
