Rick Astley recreates his ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ video 35 years on

Truly incredible

Rick Astley has recreated the music video for his enduring anthem ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ 35 years on.

A Number 1 hit in the UK, the United States and dozens of countries around the globe upon its release in July 1987, Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ has become the basis for the “Rickrolling” Internet meme and the pop banger is still as popular as ever today.

Astley has famously performed the song with Foo Fighters on several occasions, and the original ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ video has been watched more than 1.2 billion times on YouTube since it was uploaded 13 years ago.

After the song celebrated its 35th anniversary last month, 56-year-old Rick Astley has now recreated the original video in an advert for the American car insurance company, CSAA Insurance Group.

The parody sees Astley perform in the same outfits he wore in the first video while people from the insurance company dance alongside him.

At the end of the clip, one of the versions of Rick Astley asks his other two incarnations, “Is this still a thing?!”

Testament to the unstoppable popularity of ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, the CSAA Insurance Group advert has been watched 2.4 million times in two days on Twitter. The YouTube clip has more than 700,000 views.

We’ve been Rickrolled!
