Though Melania Trump spends the majority of her time taking care of her 11-year-old son, Barron Trump, and fulfilling her duties as the First Lady, her husband, Donald Trump, once reminded everyone that she also has a knack for acting!
On Wednesday, Jan. 31, Donald met with Aflac employees in the Oval Office to discuss tax cuts, and he pointed out that he’s actually worked with the company before. “Your chairman I know very well, and he’s done a fantastic job. And they actually, a long time ago, hired my wife to do a big commercial,” the President said, according to a White House note. “You know that, right? An Aflac commercial. And I think it was a successful commercial, too.”
The 2005 clip the POTUS is referring to is titled “Experiment,” and is a clear play on the hit horror movie Frankenstein. Filmed in black and white, Melania can be seen lying down on a table next to the Aflac duck, while a pair of crazy scientists discuss their plan — they intend to switch the woman’s voice with the duck’s so that they can “tell the world the benefits of Aflac, with sex appeal.” It proves successful, with Melania being able to only quack like the Aflac duck, who’s voiced by Gilbert Gottfried. Oh, and she also develops a pair of webbed feet!
The light-hearted clip is a far cry from the Melania the world has seen lately. The First Lady disappeared from the spotlight for a few weeks last month after In Touch Weekly shared details of her husband’s alleged affair in 2006. She eventually resurfaced to attend the President’s State of the Union address on Tuesday, Jan. 30, but she noticeably kept her distance from Donald by arriving separately from her husband. She also made headlines for her outfit: a cream pantsuit that could have been plucked straight from Hilary Clinton’s closet — which made some viewers think that she was taking a dig at the President. Well, that’s one way to send a message!
