Everybody’s favorite troll, Deadmau5, Rick-rolled the crowd on April Fool’s Day at Hammerstein Ballroom during his last NYC stop on the Lots of Shows tour.
Just as the crowd was getting really into “Moar Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff,” he stopped the track to go into “Never Gonna Give You Up” – Rick Astley. NYC had a great sense of humor about it, because in the video below you can hear everyone belting out the tune as if it was one of Deadmau5’s own. After playing out the meme-worthy track for a bit, he rewarded the crowd with his fan-favorite “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff.”
We have to give Deadmau5 props for this — it’s probably the best April Fool’s prank we’ve heard of this year! Plus, with all of the complex programming that goes into running Cube 2.1, it couldn’t have been easy to add another track into his set. But, leave it to Deadmau5 to do something this elaborate just for shits and gigs!
