RollTube is a Rick Roll Firefox Extension that switches every YouTube video with the infamous Rick Roll video. The experience has been described as “like the whole internet ganging up and rick rolling you at the same time”.

 
We say: great to install across all the machines in your office / lab / classroom. RollTube is cross platform and needs no special admin rights to install!

 
The Video: includes instructions and RollTube snuff action!


RollTube – the rick roll firefox extension from fffffat labs on Vimeo.

 
Install:
UPDATED – You Tube seems to be on to us – they blocked the video. RollTube 0040 uses a different rick roll video. The War is on!
Get RollTube Regular or the super evil RollTube Autoplay here.

 
Info:
RollTube is the 2nd in our FFFFFAT series of evil firefox extensions (totally worksafe!) and follows hot on the heels of the original bad boy, the Firefox Tourettes Extension. FFFFFAT believes in supplying both sides in the all out Rick Astley war – so to protect ya neck check out the “Never be Rick Rolled again” Rick Roll Adblock Extension.

 
Open Source:
In typical fffffat fffffashion get and improve the source here
Auto play source here. Use the awesome User Script Compiler to turn the code into an extension.

 
Enjoy!

    Wow, can the super evil version 2.0 be a self installing virus?

    People should post reaction vids!

  2. theo says:

    Yeah Jamie is working on a auto installer that sits on a usb stick. So you can just plug it in and it installs our whole suite of evil firefox addons. For mac it is quite easy you just pop the unzipped xpi folder in Firefox/Contents/MacOS/Extensions . No need to confirm installation or anything.

  17. john d'arc says:

    hey, uh…the extension seems to be dead. or at least the rick roll video seems to no longer be on youtube, so i get that black “video removed” thingie.

    fix it?

  18. john d'arc says:

    why does the extension not work for me? i keep getting the “video is unavailable” screen, but the video works!

  19. theo says:

    Yeah – youtube somehow blocked it! Crazy – they blocked me from using a lot of rick roll videos – but they missed one. Updated plugin that fixes the problem linked above in the install section.

    They removed the video again.

  23. iz broke again =(

    what would be awesome is if this extension had an input option, where u could just put the address of the video in yrself and use this for ANY video. then instantly change it when it goes down.

    is that possible???
