The Old Rickrolling

Apparently, [the co-writer of “Never Gonna Give You Up” has made a total of about 16 dollars from YouTube views of the song’s video][link]. The article doesn’t say how much he’s made from other revenue streams. I find it impossible to believe that the Rickroll meme didn’t make him plenty of money from things like increased radio play, sales on iTunes, and so forth.
