You people have probably already seen this. But just in case:
Obviously, I like it. But what, exactly, was the Cartoon Network thinking? Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends isn’t The Venture Brothers. It’s a show for kids, not net-savvy hipsters. And besides, most hipsters aren’t tuning in at 9 am for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I’m guessing 95% of NBC’s viewers were simply mystified by the surprise appearance of Rick Astley. Then again, this is making headlines all over the net, reaching people who have no interest in the parade itself. Then again, I’m betting most people who are amused by Rickrolling don’t have kids.
So, thoughts? Is the Cartoon Network brilliant, or did they just indulge their own geeky fantasies without helping their show?
