Melania Trump may have plagiarized First Lady Michelle Obama on Monday in her Republican National Convention Speech, but did the wife of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump also Rickroll the audience?

The meme, which involves sending unsuspecting viewers to the video for Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up.” It appears Ms. Trump is no stranger to the song”

“He will never, ever give up,” she said about Donald Trump during her RNC speech. “And most importantly, he will never, ever let you down.”

To compare, the refrain for Astley’s 1987 smash hit begins with: “Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down.”

YouTube user The Swog Blog posted a comparison/contrast video of Melania Trump’s Monday moment and the music video.

Astley’s reps did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.
