So he's only gone and won the ' Best Act ever ' award at the MTV Europe Music Awards :shock: :shock: :shock:
Surely it couldnt get any worse. Can it??
His nomination was the result of a running joke online, stemming from the now infamous Rickrolling thing. I voted for him 20 or 30 times one night out of boredom, never thought for a minute he'd actually win it though.
Joke or not, apparently MTV are refusing to let Rick accept it:
I left myself logged into one of the Rickrolling sites for the vote for an hour or so, I guess I must have voted for Rick about 1000 times maybe. I think it's wonderful.
The more common story is that Rick refused repeated offers from MTV to appear live to accept the award, but as with 9/11 and the man in the chip-shop who swears he's Elvis, we may never know the real truth.
look at the other nominees: Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Green Day, Tokio Hotel, U2. he might as well have it
we have 4chan to thank for it.
a couple of my mates who go on there used macros in order to post about 4000 votes in around 3 hours or so, so if you take into account the majority of "/b/tards" were using such programs, it figures he got 95% of the votes.
lol, this has been goin on for a while on 4chan
I'm so sick of the ironic appreciation of eighties and early nineties musical and cultural icons.

I Pity da fool!
I do enjoy AU's 'ironic iconic' though, they aren't trying to be quirky and hilarious with it.
surely the barman from rick's video deserves most enthusiastic victualler of the times, like, ever. when i order a gin and tonic i want it with a somersault and a smile, dammit.
