Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters rickroll a club audience in real time with a real Rick Astley

I got a tweet earlier this weekend from someone who was inside The Moth Club in London saying that the Foo Fighters were playing a secret surprise gig in front of maybe 100 people.

That’s cool enough, but then the Foos dropped the bomb: A real-life rickroll featuring the real-life Rick Astley.

Naturally, the surprise didn’t stay secret for long.
