The Australian radio station Triple J is about to launch its year-end Hottest 100 countdown. And to build up anticipation (or whatever), it put together a comedy sketch that stars as many musicians as possible. It’s pretty obvious that none of these people in were in the same room at the same time, but it’s still fun to watch the avalanche of dumb puns and the constant barrage of cameos: Lorde! Disclosure! Alt-J! Skrillex and Diplo! Ben Folds! First Ait Kit! Reggie Watts! Flume! Rick Astley! So many Australian groups who I don’t recognize! Check out the sketch below.
The idea of Rick Astley as a constant human Rickroll who won’t let the whole thing go is obviously the highlight of this thing.
