Rick Astley is an '80s icon ...

But his fans are not sure how to feel after his hit music video 'Never Gonna Give You Up' got a major upgrade.

The 1987 video was remastered by someone on YouTube, bringing the former hazy look to an ultra-crisp one where every detail is shockingly realistic - and it has taken the internet by storm.

While the new video was uploaded a few weeks ago, it only started making the rounds on social media over the weekend, with fans saying it makes them feel "uncomfortable."

"Why does this make me feel uncomfortable," added another.
