Now you can Rickroll people in 4k thanks to this hero who remastered Rick Astley's classic "Never Gonna Give You Up" music video.

Not all heroes wear capes. Some simply harness the power of neural networks to upscale '80s music videos to 4k and 60fps.

I remember the good old days of the internet when someone would send you an innocuous link claiming it was something useful, but when you clicked through you were greeted by the crooning of a very '80s-looking ginger.

Fun times.

The practice breathed fresh life into Rick Astley's classic "Never Gonna Give You Up" music video, and the prank came to be known as Rickrolling.

But if you're like most people, part of you was always sad when you got Rickroll'd because the video quality was so poor. You always thought to yourself...

Boy I just wish I could see more of Rick Astley's pores!

Well no one asked, but this guy delivered. Prepare to feel uncomfortable as you watch this unsettling remaster of "Never Gonna Give You Up" in 4k at 60 frames-per-second.

Please, do me a favor and Rickroll someone with this today.
