Student’s Essay Sneakily Rickrolls Professor

Recommended Videos

Rickrolling, generally a digital bait-and-switch, involves tricking someone into viewing or hearing the Rick Astley song, “Never Gonna Give You Up.” When redditor Mayniac182 was certain a computer class teacher didn’t actually read through students’ work, the redditor decided to hide the lyrics to “Never Gonna Give You Up” within a paper. Check out the full essay below, as well as Mayniac182’s full explanation.

Explanation:

Everyone in my computing class is certain the teacher doesn’t actually go through ANY work we hand in. So I’ve been up for the last few hours crafting this. The first paragraph started as an idea to use ridiculously complex words to confuse him (English is his second language), do that for a bit then just go Fresh Prince on him, but that got boring.

If you want to read through it all and figure out what I’ve done to it (aside from writing complete bullshit), read through it now and don’t read the next line.

Read the first word of every line that touches the left margin (so everything that isn’t indented). It’s taken eight cups of coffee, but I finally did it. Rickrolling my computing teacher in style.

EDIT: I handed it in just over an hour ago. Next lesson is on Friday, but I doubt he’ll ever give it back. If he does, it will probably just have a few ticks on it or something.

I’ll do a follow up if he finds the Rickrolling though.
