Australian PM sends doomsday message in spoof video

In what appears to be a serious warning of impending doom, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard looks into the camera and proclaims, “My dear remaining fellow Australians, the end of the world is coming.”

Turns out, it was all in fun as Gillard references Korean pop music, the predicted crashing of computer systems at the turn of the millennium and even Australia’s recent controversial carbon tax legislation.

“It wasn’t Y2K, it wasn’t even the carbon price. It turns out the Mayan calendar was true,” said Gillard.

The message ends with Gillard joking that “at least this means I won’t have to do Q & A again”, referring to a weekly Australian current affairs show.

Sky News reports that “according to the Mayan calendar the world will end on December 21 which represents the end of a cycle in the Mayan long count calendar that began in the year 3114 before Christ.”

Gillard ends with, “”Good luck to you all.”
