YouTube Pulls Rickroll Video Due to a Mistake; It's Now Back

The famous "Rickroll" video with over 30 million views was accidentally pulled from YouTube earlier on, causing plenty of howls from pranksters worldwide. Thankfully, YouTube has acknowledged that it was a mistake and the video is back where it is, waiting for people to accidentally click on it. We should all be glad that there is justice in the world after all, and pranksters can continue to trick unwary and innocent folks into clicking the link. - Earlier today Neowin reported that the original "Rickroll" video, that had clocked up 30 million views to date, was removed with the text "This video has been removed due to terms of use violation". It appears the users account which is linked with the video was mistakenly disabled.
