Those who tuned in for the beginning of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel might have been waiting for that moment they realized they were being rickrolled. 

Megalodon Documentary

The channel kicked off their legendary week celebrating the deep sea killers with the most infamous of sharks, Megalodon. In a two hour documentary, they took a good look at the mythic creature and did their best to draw him out.
