Vote Rick 08

It seems like the tail-end of 2008 is shaping-up the election zone: New Zealand and MTV’s Best Act Ever.  Is there anything else happening?

Rick Astley Best Act Ever

We’ve already commented on the Kiwi Election, and the pet food company’s attempt to predict the result.  As part of the MTV European Music Awards, MTV is trying to find what it’s viewers and website users consider to be the best act ever. 

Who is in the shortlist for the "Best Act Ever"?  Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Green Day, Rick Astley, Tokio Hotel, and U2 (MTV Europe Music Awards [^]).  I like some of these acts.  But really, some of those acts have only been around for five minutes, why didn’t they add Joe Dolce and Paris Hilton?

In light of the crappy choices the Best Act Ever website [^] was set-up.  If you have bad choices you may as well make the most of it, and ensure that the most worthy contender wins.  To helo this happen the site includes an automated Rick voter – leave your browser on this website and the votes for Rick keep on rolling in.  There are also freely downloadable tools that let you do it yourself.

So is this fair for the competition? Who cares, if anyone does they can download and hack the tools to vote for someone else.  Who cares anyway, no-one except maybe U2 belongs in the list.  Any list of best acts ever should include the Rolling Stones and the Beatles, and any number of other long-time serial hit-makers.

Here is an opportunity to get RickRolled [^], and still get to see what you want!

CannibalRabbit admission: I liked Rick way back in 1987, and "I’m never gonna give him up [^]"
