Prime Minister Julia Gillard participated in the end of the world celebrations of Triple J's breakfast show when she appeared in a short yet funny video.
PM Gillard managed to take time out from her busy preparations for the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) standoff on Friday and filmed the video clip on Tuesday in Melbourne.
Interpretations of the 2012 Mayan calendar suggest that the world will end on December 21. However, the radio and PM Gillard decided to join forces on a comical approach about the upcoming apocalypse where the Australian Prime Minister talked about political spin and the mix of pop cultures.
In the video clip, PM Gillard confirmed the Mayan calendar apocalypse prediction was right and it will hit this month. "My dear remaining fellow Australians, the end of the world is coming. It wasn't Y2K, it wasn't even the carbon price. It turns out the Mayan calendar was true," PM Gillard stated in the brief address posted on YouTube.
PM Gillard also stated that even though scientists at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) cannot verify the apocalypse news, she is certain that the alternative radio station Triple J's prediction is accurate.
"Whether the final blow comes from flesh-eating zombies, demonic hell beasts or from the total triumph of K-Pop, if you know one thing about me, it's this: I will always fight for you to the very end," PM Gillard declared straight-faced while standing on a lectern flanked with two Australian flags.
Despite prediction of the world coming to an end, Prime Minister Julia Gillard still looked on the bright side and felt pleased that she no longer has to make an appearance on ABC's Q&A again. "And at least this means I won't have to do Q&A again. Good luck to you all," PM Gillard said.
