A MANDURAH based Domino’s delivery driver revealed why she Rickrolled a 90s quiz night last Saturday.
Jaimey Legg has been a Domino’s delivery driver for a year and Amanda Marie was at a 90s quiz night with friends.
That’s when fate intervened and allowed these two strangers to stage an epic prank.
Amanda decided to order some Domino’s pizza.
Her quiz night team name was Rick Rollers (which was obviously wrong as Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give you up is an 80s song) – but this is where Jaimey comes in.
The self confessed “drama queen” said all sorts of requests came through with delivery instructions.
“Like draw a picture on the box or people ask you to sing, so you turn up and then they say no it’s ok you don’t have to,” she said.
“This is the best one I’ve had.”
Amanda had a devious plan to Rickroll everyone at the quiz night.
On the delivery instructions, she wrote “please come in singing never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around and desert you” and explained why.
Jaimey took her instructions seriously and walked in and Rickrolled everyone.
“I was giggling my head off,” Jaimey said.
“I didn’t expect it to go further than that night.”
She said her workmates had a bit of a chuckle when she told them “they want me to Rick Roll them”.
“My boss said – well you better do it,” Jaimey said.
“It was a great time, I like putting smiles on people’s faces.”
Amanda put a post on the Domino’s Pizza Australia Facebook page praising Jaimey’s performance.
The post has 258 likes and strangers are calling Jaimey employee of the year and reckon she should receive a payrise.
Rickrolling, the most annoying prank ever?
For those not in the know, Rick Rolling involves surprising someone with Rick Astley’s cheesy 80s hit Never Gonna Give You Up.
This meme originated on the internet as a bait and switch.
A legitimate looking link is posted, which seems to be related to the topic at hand, but it actually leads to Astley’s video.
Rickrolling has extended beyond web links to playing the video or song disruptively in other situations, including public places.
