Rick Rolled College Essay

This is Sairam Gudiseva's Niels Bohr essay. He originally posted the picture on Twitter with the tweet reading, "Rick Rolled my physics teacher ... " on January 13th and it has since gone viral. Some outlets have mistakenly listed him as a college student (which he quickly shot down on his Twitter feed) and it should have been pretty obvious by the "3rd Period" in the header.

While the essay itself might not be the greatest piece of literature you've ever read, the ability to get your point across while getting the words to all line up properly along the margin is quite amazing. It's unclear if he highlighted the words for his teacher or just for the Twitter-verse, but I would be interested to see how that exchange went down and what he actually received for the paper.

Looks like an 'A' paper to me ...

Breathing life into a very old meme, physics student Sairam Gudiseva Rickrolled his teacher in spectacular fashion, inserting every word of Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up into an essay.

Getting each word to line up with the margin would be no mean feat with any piece of writing, let alone an assessment of the influence of Danish scientist Niels Bohr on quantum theory.

The student posted a picture of his submission on Twitter, with the parts that were more Astley than Gudiseva highlighted (though it's not clear whether this was the work of the teacher, or whether the Rickroll went unnoticed).

Perhaps the best known example of interpolating song lyrics where they don't belong came from BBC presenter Chris Packham, who over a number of years slipped Smiths' song names into episodes of Springwatch.
