LJ got a bunch of its users with a Rickroll. (The previous link is not one.) Which is pretty much just an unexpected link to an earwormy 80's song, but the fact that it came from LJ, and that they were aware enough of their own issues to know that the way to sucker people into clicking it was to invent yet another new official LJ news comm to follow, was funny.

No, I get that it was funny that the news post went to a music video. I just don't have a clue what "Rickroll" is or who was in the music video or why I should care.

The what and the who are both covered in the Encyclopedia Dramatica not wikipedia link; the why, I can't speak for. I care because it amused me, which LJ as a company hasn't been doing a lot of recently.
