The environmental activist began her speech on Saturday (October 16), as expected, with important messages on climate action, before slipping into the familiar phrase: “We are no strangers to love…”.

As the crowd cheered, immediately realizing the context, a fellow worker joined her on stage to complete the song, with Astley’s 1987 classic ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ continuing in the background.


Sharing the clip on Twitter, Astley tweeted his approval, commenting in Swedish: “Fantastic and tac sa myket! Rick X”, which translates to “thank you very much”.

The clip was originally shared Climate Live’s official Tiktok accountWhere the pair of workers can be seen singing, dancing and laughing along with the song.

“After all, we’re just teenagers fooling around with each other, not just the angry kids the media often portrays us as,” Thunberg told the Swedish newspaper. Aftenbladet.

Earlier this year, Thunberg called on humanity to take “brave” action to avoid a catastrophic climate change crisis in the wake of a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).


Responding to Twitter, the activist wrote: “No real surprises in the new IPCC report. It confirms what we already know from thousands of previous studies and reports – that we are in an emergency. This is a solid (but cautious) summary of the current best available science.

“It doesn’t tell us what to do. It’s up to us to be brave and make decisions based on the scientific evidence provided in these reports. We can still avoid the worst consequences, but if we do like today Let’s continue, and not without seeing the crisis as a crisis.

Astley recently played two of Smith’s tribute shows with Blossoms, after which she received critical acclaim. While Morrissey was pleased with the tribute, his former bandmate Johnny Marr was less impressed when the gigs were first announced.

A week later, Mar told Granthshala that the issue had been “settlemented”, adding to their complaints: “There was a MO who was not very good.”
