David Bowie’s son Duncan Jones had fans hopes up when he announced a new animated series about the late music legend yesterday… but unfortunately, it was just an April Fool’s Day gag.

Taking advantage of the trickster holiday, Jones took to Twitter to announce that Aardman Animations, the studio behind “Wallace and Gromit,” developed a new series about Bowie. Along with the announcement, he shared a picture of Wallace in Ziggy Stardust getup and makeup.
But upon clicking the link, followers were met with the classic “Rickrolling” clip, Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up.” Even so, some fans are keeping their hopes up that the trick will turn into a reality, with Jones replying, “we’ll make it up to everyone.”
