Let the Rickrolling douchebaggery begin.

Some poor, tortured soul decided to combine Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” and Avicii’s “Wake Up” and the results are, results. This is a thing that’s happened, and you can too.

It’s actually a deft remix in how seamlessly its parts fit, and the ease with which you forget how the original ingredients sounded on their own.

Even Will Smith and John Travolta had to come through and do the damn thing, waxing some serious moves over the Astley/Avicii mashup.

Nothing may ever bring you as much joy as this video, so don’t sleep. Or else you’re, “Never Gonna Wake Up.”
