WFAA Meteorologist Greg Fields Keeps the Spirit of Rickrolling Alive

Well, at least he did this morning, when the rather serious Dallas news personality invoked the ghost of Rick Astley (I know he's still alive) and participated in the Internet bait-and-switch phenomenon known as "Rickrolling." Which leads everyone to ask: That's still a thing?

Yes. I think when you reach the end of the Internet and have looked at every last cat video, that song is just playing on loop, as you looking into a pitch black void of nothingness. I thought he might have gone for a Fresh Prince, but the Astley song suits him.
