People Really Hate Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna Give You Up' 4k Remaster

There are very few memes as timeless as the "Rickroll." The meme, which involves Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up," is a classic prank. And today, the internet became shocked after seeing their beloved 1987 music video remastered in crisp and clean 4k. The remaster comes courtesy of Revideo, a YouTube account that remasters videos with AI for kicks. This is without a doubt their most viral effort. On Twitter, user @Ray_sho shared a clip of the spiffed up video, deeming it cursed. Though some viewers were appreciative of the makeover, many responses echoed their revulsion. We'll admit that there's a certain charm that's lost with all the fuzziness eliminated, but anything involving Mr. Astley is a joy in our books. Check out the difference between the videos (and enjoy some of the peanut gallery's responses) below.

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.
