The White House Twitter Account Just Rickrolled Someone

Ryan Whitwam

Government bureaucrats have a reputation for being stodgy and without a sense of humor. Well, the aid tasked with running the @whitehouse Twitter account might have just proved that wrong. The White House just Rickrolled a user that complained about the entertainment value of recent Obama briefings. Take that !

“Sorry to hear that,” the Tweet began. “Fiscal policy is important, but can be dry sometimes. Here's something more fun.” The link that followed was that infamous YouTube favorite “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley. A year or two late, but somehow its funny all over again when the government is Rickrolling citizens on Twitter.

We cannot be certain if this is truly a burn on the user, or if maybe the White House actually thinks the video is fun. What do you think?
