Greta Thunberg ‘Rickrolls’ public and bursts into dance moves at climate concert
SAmerican climate activist Greta Thunberg danced and sang in front of an audience the 1980s song “Never Gonna Give You Up”, which has been best known in recent years for “Rickrolls” at a climate concert.
The 18-year-old performed with other activists on stage in Stockholm during Climate Live, a youth-led concert for weather action, Saturday. Climate Live posted a video of Thunberg on its TIC Tac Account.
“This is what happens when activists organize concerts,” the description of the video reads.
“We are no strangers to love”, Thunberg tells the audience the opening lyrics of the song.
“You know the rules and so do I,” said a voice off camera, continuing with the song’s lyrics before the music started and Thunberg launched into the dance.
“Rickrolling” is an internet prank where someone sends a disguised URL to the music video for Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”.
The concert included several other performances by Swedish pop musicians.
Thunberg reprimanded world leaders speaking at the Youth4Climate summit at the end of September.
“Build better. Blah, blah, blah. Green economy. Blah, blah, blah. Net-zero by 2050. Blah, blah, blah,” she said. noted. “That’s all we hear from our so-called leaders. Words – words that sound good but so far [have] did not lead to any action. Our hopes and dreams are drowned in their empty words and promises. “
“There is no planet B. There is no blah-blah planet,” she said.
“Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,” she continued to clap.
“Of course we need a constructive dialogue, but they have now had 30 years of ‘blah, blah, blah’, and where has that led us?” she asked.
