The press conference was about the signing of an agreement on nuclear submarines by the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States. The conference was held via link, and both prime ministers of the UK and Australia were on video link.
When the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, concluded his speech with President Joe Biden, the President responded:
– Thank you so much Boris, I just want to say “it fell down”.
“Down Under” is an English word for Australia and New Zealand and refers to the geographical location of countries in the Southern Hemisphere. However, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison responded by taking everything seriously:
– Thanks a lot buddy.
Shortly afterwards, Joe Biden read from a teleprompter and was able to name the Australian Prime Minister.
– As Prime Minister Morrison and Prime Minister Johnson have said, I am very grateful for this cooperation.
The event received a lot of attention in the international media, including Supplementary Magazine.
