Mets Pick Rick Astley Song (NOT!)
The New York Mets baseball team has been "rickrolled". The team let their fans vote on what song they wanted to hear during the late inning stretch at home games and pranksters took the opportunity to take '80s Velveeta-approved, "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley, to the the no.1 slot. Despite some 5 million votes, Mets spokesperson Jay Horowitz warns, "If you're betting, I wouldn't bet on Astley", referring to the song's chances of obtaining ultimate approval from both the team and fans. Um, how 'bout "Together Forever", guys? No?
