That is the longest I have ever happily endured a rickroll.

Totally worth it just for the '(QLYT)'.

Starting them out of sync makes it even more 80's like.

I had a little problem with this. If anyone is having trouble, the solution is to press "play," then "restart," then "play" again.

Check out the rest of the stuff in Mr. Doob's lab. He does some really cool PV3D stuff.

I think I liked it more when it first started and was slightly out of sync. Once I restarted it and it was all nice and in-sync then it wasn't so neat anymore.

Mind you, nice to have a different Astley song for once.

Finally, a different Rick Astley song!

My roommate in college found his classic (never gonna give you up?) on vinyl in a thrift store: It sounded a whole lot better played back at 45 RPM.

@dunkadunc.

There used to be a rumour in thew late 80's, that Kylie Minogue was, in reality, just Rick Astley played at double speed.

IIRC this was at a time when Slick Rick was the 'star product' from the Stock, Aitken and Waterman 'pop factory' and Kylie was but a spunky young Aussie upstart.

How I hated those 3 cynical pop-Svengalis - and some things never change
