Australian Prime Minister Confirms Mayan Apocalypse Predictions in Prank Speech (Video)

Is the end of the world nigh? No, not really, but that doesn't mean we're going to stop hearing about it until December 21st - the day that the Mayan calendar "predicts" the apocalypse will take place - passes. The newest reference comes out of Australia in the form of a speech from the prime minister herself, Julia Gillard

Filmed as a prank for a radio station's breakfast show, the short, hilarious speech consisted of Gillard confirming that the world is going to end on December 21st, probably brought on by "flesh-eating zombies, demonic hell-beasts or the total triumph of K-Pop." Yep, sounds legit. 

When asked by a local paper for a comment about the prank speech, a representative for the Prime Minister kept the joke going: "What Australian doesn't mind a laugh from time to time? Anyway, the world's going to end tomorrow so shouldn't you be writing about that?"
