Rick Roll Never Gonna Give You Up Graduation Card (PLAYS ACTUAL SONG)
Size: 7 inches x 5 inches
Sound: "Never gonna give you up/ Never gonna let you down/ Never gonna run around and desert you/ Never gonna make you cry/ Never gonna say goodbye/ Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you"
Background: If you wanna go to college or university in the USA, you're probably going to have to take out some student loans (unless your parents are loaded and filthy rich). Unfortunately, those loans take years to pay off. So congrats on your graduate diploma, but not so congrats on your new debt. The perfect graduation card for a new grad who'll be sending half their paycheck to pay off financial aid. They should really call them financial AIDS cuz they're killer =(
In 1987, pop artist Rick Astley released his debut single “Never Gonna Give You Up” on his first album Whenever You Need Somebody. The song became number one throughout the world. In the late 2000s, Rick Rolling became a bait-and-switch practice that involves providing a web link supposedly relevant to the topic at hand, but actually re-directs the viewer to the song.
According to 4chan founder m00t, the “Rickroll” phenomenon began on /v/ (videogame board) circa May 2007, when someone posted a link to Rick Astley’s music video disguised as a sneak preview for the then newly released videogame Grand Theft Auto IV.
College isn't cheap. The day you graduate is a day closer to have to pay off those dreaded student loans. This funny graduation card will help dampen one of the most significant events of a new grads life. If only you could put some money in here...
