It happened in 2007. Thanks to the prevalent bait-and-switch technique of “Rickrolling,” an English singer-songwriter’s career was revived. Message-board contributors would click a hyperlink to something purportedly relevant to the conversation, only to have a YouTube window open and Rick Astley’s 1988 No. 1 hit “Never Gonna’ Give You Up” blare through their speakers. The practice is still popular. Astley, who had retired nearly two decades prior, was able to re-emerge as an Internet phenomenon, nearly 20 years removed from the song’s original release.

But maybe he’ll show up.
