THE Rick-rolling phenomenom has been taken to another level as a high school student cleverly imbedded the famous Never Gonna Give You up lyrics in his essay.

Sairam Gudise used the words of Rick Astley’s song at the beginning of each line, in his quantum physics paper.

He later posted a picture of his work, with the words highlighted, on Twitter, with the image being re-tweeted almost 18,000 times.

The rickrolling internet saga started in 2007 and involves directing unsuspecting internet users to a video of the 1987 hit single via a web link.

The Newton-le-Willows star, whose other hits include Together Forever, and Whenever You Need Somebody, now lives in the London suburb of Richmond with his wife Lene and daughter Emilie.

He rose to fame in the late 1980s and dominated charts around the world.

He still holds the record of being the only male solo artist to have his first eight singles reach the UK top 10 and in 2008 he won best act ever at the MTV Europe Music Awards.

He is now a regular veteran at many 80s pop festivals.
