I think you're right that in past years it has been the actual Rickroll, not just the video that stops at the end. I can't even remember what the joke was last year--I'd thought we hadn't done one because it was on the weekend but that had to have been the year before since in 2013 it was on a Monday.
I think it was the hidden team of writers.

Aw, heck.

Well, good joke--sure got me! After seeing the headline, YESTERDAY, I went and told a few acquaintances about my excitement at ol' Steve's GUTS at having the audacity to turn his early 80s haunted car masterpiece into a, y'know, double-shot of mainstream horror goodness...

Joke's on me too, eh? Aw, well. Hell. I was kinda looking forward to this one, too.

On a more positive note, if this was just a cheapy-cheap form of test marketing, I'd say the idea, bare-bones and as described, struck a note with, what? At least six or seven of us. Dammit Uncle Stevie! Well played, sensei...well played.


Happy Four Oh One, y'all!



Yer Pal,
Bobbo

I'm surprised you are not still getting job applications from last years prank. Or was it a phoney e-mail address? Even though I did not fall for it, I thought posting that Stephen King was not real, but just a bunch of ghost writers was a great prank.

Because I got so excited! I totally fell for it. I couldn't view the video because it says " not available in your country" , it's only the next day I saw "April's Fools. Thinking about it, no, I don't think a sequel of Christine is such a great idea but just thinking there was even more SK coming out soon... Well, I was truly had. Reminded me the end of the Colorado Kid.
