DJs Troll Entire Crowd By Dropping The Beat A Little Too Well

Not even Rick Astley trolls this hard.

As this inspired bit of pranking makes clear, there's a big difference between dropping the beat -- and disowning it entirely. Australian electronic dance music artists Mashd N Kutcher took advantage of a hopped-up crowd at one of their shows recently, swapping out the punchy climax EDM is known for with something a bit more ... mellow.

Billboard notes Mashd N Kutcher isn't the first electronica group to troll a crowd with such devastatingly effective tactics, but based on the audible groan in the video, it's certainly one of the most entertaining.

Even though the song is actually Spandau Ballet's hit single, "True," we'd like to think Rick Astley is out there, somewhere, smiling.
