Good news, Rick Astley’s weirdly iconic ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ has been remastered in 4K, so now you can add some better viewing quality to your rick roll.
Yup, some big Rick Astley fan, or someone who hasn’t moved on from the 2008 meme, thought, “Fuck this needs a HD makeover.” And here we are.
The 4K reimagining of the 1987 single is clear and crisp in the creepiest kind of way. You can watch it and all its very smooth-faced subjects down below.
Revideo uploaded the new video to Youtube back at the end of January, but it went viral this week.
