Of course, who has a VCR still hooked up at home? But, yeah, apparently this guy does: “I found a VHS tape at the junk store that just had the label 'A surprise!'” he tweeted on Sunday. “I thought I'd check it out, since I have a VCR & TV hooked up after all.” And what do you think this man found?

Sure, imaginations can run wild with what monstrosities might actually be present on the worn-out Mylar ribbon spooled inside of a creepy videocassette located in the back of a thrift shop. But was it actually something spooky? Was it a ghost video? A UFO encounter? Something else?

Wait for it…

Wait for it…

Here's what he found:

Ah, a Rickroll. Lovely.

As pointed out over at Mashable, some Twitter users are advising the brave VHS seeker to stop looking through old videotapes before he comes across something he really doesn't wanna see. Samara Morgan, maybe?

"Nicole Rork has an exceptional eye for catching “that moment” in her photographic work. There aren’t many photographers out there that have both a great sense of timing as well as composition in their work and Nicole has both. She has been attentive to deadlines and quick turnarounds and has always been a great person to work with on many projects over the years. I would highly recommend her to anyone – from a band needing promotional shots to a couple who are ready to enjoy their wedding day." Mike Shea, Alternative Press CEO
