Rick Astley Talks about Moot

Rick Astley, the “Never Gonna Give you Up” singer, or the “Rickroll” dude as he’s most popularly known, writes about Moot being Time’s most influential person.

Before I heard about moot — the mysterious 21-year-old creator of the influential Web message board 4chan.org, who just happened to win TIME.com’s online poll to determine the world’s most influential people — I used to think some young kid had stumbled across my video and thought it would be funny to send it to his mates, and it just kind of caught on. I suppose at first I was a little embarrassed by it. I always liken it to when people look through their photo albums or home videos from 20 years ago and think, Gosh, did I really wear that?
