Thanks to rickrolling, Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” has lived on past its initial 1987 release. What initially started as an internet meme, as a bait and switch hyperlink, has extended beyond that and even had Astley himself rickrolling live at the 2008 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The latest to show the love for Astley’s pop hit is the cast of AMC’s Mad Men.
Some enterprising individual decided to go through five seasons of footage and edit a video mashup of the cast reciting the song’s lyrics, creating a Mad Men lip dub of sorts. Personally, I love the part in the middle of the clip where there’s a dance break with the cast busting out some moves. Check out the video mashup below, especially if you’re a fan of Mad Men or Rick Astley.

What do you think? Even though I like it, I still think the video mashup of Lionel Richie’s “Hello” using scenes from multiple iconic movies is still the best. If you haven’t watched that yet, click here.
