It's like the '80s actually happened.


The internet is never going to give Rick Astley up. 

The latest source of fascination with Astley's 1987 hit Never Gonna Give You Up comes from YouTube user Revideo, who remastered the song's music video in 4K, at 60 frames per second, which is just a lot of frames of Rick Astley. The result is a crisp version of the video with so much more detail than you knew you needed. 

Though the video was originally uploaded Jan. 31, the internet seems to have found it Thursday, and some are a bit weirded out by it, perhaps because it's proof that the '80s actually happened-- ally trench coats, and all.
