Student Hides Rick Astley's Song In College Paper

I once wrote the football results in the middle of a literature paper to see if the teacher was really reading it. This guy included Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up in acrostic form. Updated.


The computer science student, Reddit user Mayniac182, spent five hours formatting his paper into the acrostic Rickroll you can see in the video and the image below.

Update: Mayniac182 just told me that his class is getting the papers back tomorrow. If the professor returns the paper without marking the rickroll, he's thinking about playing the video I made in the class projector. Check back tomorrow for the final outcome of the story.

Never tired to hide anything, but often would write unrelated essays/answers if I didn't know the right thing to say.

For example, when doing calculus entrance exams at U Chicago, I really had no idea how to do calculus because I'm no good with abstract concepts... so I drew a bunch of alien cartoons. My answer to "what is a limit?" was something along the lines of "there's only so many answers and so the limit is when there's... no more." and drew a picture of a brick wall with a little alien named "equation" slamming into it. I got placed into the 3rd quarter of calc. fail.

Another time I had an ancient civilizations course and had no idea what the answer was to a question, so I wrote a 2 page essay about hummingbirds, due to having just watched a PBS special on the topic. I was informed that "this university is one of the best in the country, and no place for jokes." also fail.
