I noticed that a few months ago. I'm sure its been there a lot longer.

It's a shame that it's not a link to the video.

Oh, it's been there for... I don't know, as long as Amazon's owned woot!, I suppose?

vote-for6vote-against

Nice! Never noticed that...

I wonder if any of the higher up executives are like... "Oh that's nice" and are totally oblivious to what that means :P

Its a shame it seems like they are gonna give us up, are gonna let us down, and are gonna run around and dessert us.....

I guess when you say it like that......... Dessert us more please! (Make me pie, I like it messy)

That happened shortly after the acquisition. If you were referred to Woot.com via Amazon, it would autoplay the video where the podcast appeared for quite awhile. So, yeah, we were literally rickrolling any customer that came in via Amazon.

The redesign ruined the rickroll.

@lavikinga: thank you.

That partially salvaged an otherwise crappy day. Thanks.

@moosezilla: I have it on my lap top for easy access and I rickroll telemarketers all the time.

Pardon my exuberance. I saw it a few months ago.

@lavikinga: how do you rickroll someone over the phone? Do you hold your phone up to your computer speakers?

vote-for3vote-against

@gluonconcerto: if I have the laptop near the phone, I just set the phone down on top and let 'er "Rick." I've had telemarketers actually hang on the line and listen.

Yeah, and it seems the Konami code easter egg has been disabled also... :-(
