Rick Astley penned the bio of Moot for the Time 100 poll, aka the world’s most influential people. He thanks him and money quote: “I suppose at first I was a little embarrassed by it. I always liken it to when people look through their photo albums or home videos from 20 years ago and think, Gosh, did I really wear that?” Yes, yes you did.
Of course, Astley, received a second lease on life thanks to the whole Rickrolling phenomenon. It seems in recent months that he’s accepted the reality of the situation, moved beyond disbelief into something of gratitude.
