It’s not nice when you get Rick Rolled. You get this panicky clenching feeling in your gut before you explode and smash your keyboard. Well….no. I just stop the video, move on and feel like a better person for it.
Recently though, I fell for a prank that was a whole lot cleverer which is this blog by a mate of mine named Kor Bosch. I check the blog every now and then and before I started reading the Judging Rado entry, I saw the bit saying “Spoiler Warning! Read at your own risk! Do not read if you don’t want to be spoiled!”.
Before I go any further I should explain that I’m so conscious of spoiling movies that I won’t read current editions of Empire magazine. Instead I leave them in my room until all the films are safely out of the cinema before I start reading the magazine. Pretty daft eh? It’s a habit that I picked up when eagerly awaited films were spoiled by knowing half the plot developments before even entering the cinema.
So when I saw “Spoiler Warning! Read at your own risk! Do not read if you don’t want to be spoiled!”, I instantly stopped reading and went browsing elsewhere. It was only later when I talked to Kor that I realised the full scale of his deceit & deception but at least I can sleep easy knowing that others fell for it even after reading the full text (or a spider bot picked it up). A full week has gone by so here it is in case somebody cops on and deletes it:
