John Travolta conspicuously mistook drag queen Jade Jolie for Taylor Swift on Monday night.

Swift won the Video of the Year prize at the MTV Video Music Awards for her song “You Need To Calm Down” and Jolie, an alum of RuPaul’s Drag Race, went onstage to join the 29-year-old singer in accepting the Moon Man trophy. However, 65-year-old Travolta — who presented the award — appeared to try to hand the drag queen the trophy instead of Swift.

Funny enough, Jolie and Swift do look mildly alike and the former is reportedly known for her impression of the latter.

Jolie herself responded to the moment on Instagram.

“Almost got my first award tonight thanks to @johntravolta,” she wrote, adding crying laughing and kissing face emojis.

Twitter quickly lit up with jokes about the moment, which recalled his flub at the 2014 Oscars. While introducing Idina Menzel at that year’s Academy Awards, Travolta erroneously called the actress and singer “Adele Dazeem.”

Even memes and GIFs of Travolta’s famous 1994 film Pulp Fiction began spreading to poke fun at the moment.
