Last week, online super hacker group Anonymous announced they were going to wage war on ISIS in retaliation for the attacks on Paris. ISIS kinda laughed it off on the app Telegram saying there is nothing they can do. Since then, Anonymous has shut down over 5,000 Twitter accounts belonging to ISIS members and posted their own handy dandy “How To” guide for those wanting to help aid in hacking Daesh.
Anonymous is stepping up their trolling game, however. And the way they are doing it is downright awesome.
Our upcoming action: spamming verified ISIS hashtags with rickrolls. Will release the list as soon as it's compiled.

For those who don’t know, the term “rickrolling” comes from the trend of tricking your friends into watching Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” music video. It was funny back then, and it’s still funny today. Now when people who want to join ISIS are looking on Twitter for information, they are going to be flooded with Rick Astley videos. Genius.
ISIS is about to get Rickrolled..
