The Ultimate RickRoll - Oregon Legislature Edition

How one Oregon lawmaker convinced his colleagues to ‘Rick Roll’ the state legislature - Yahoo! News: "As Smith recalls, the idea came almost instantly. 'What if we were to Rick Roll the legislature without anybody noticing?' he wondered.
And that was the seed for what may ultimately prove to be one of the most elaborate political jokes of all time: A nearly two-minute long video of members of the Oregon House of Representatives saying the lyrics of Rick Astley's ubiquitous '80s pop ballad, 'Never Gonna Give You Up,' literally one word or phrase at a time while in session.
As The Ticket reported yesterday, the video, which was posted to YouTube on April Fools Day, has quickly gone viral, meriting write-ups on dozens of blogs and even getting play on MSNBC.
The big question: Was it real?
The answer, according to Smith, 'absolutely.'"
