The funeral of Queen Elizabeth II was broadcast today not only in the UK (well, apart from Channel 5), but also on TV channels around the world.
We mention this because one foreign broadcaster went viral with this harrowing – and excruciatingly funny – arrival of Liz Truss.
It’s Peter Overton and Tracy Grimshaw on Australia’s Channel 9, and the best thing to do is watch it for yourself.

And these are our favorite things people have said about it.
Bloody cheek! These Aussie hosts have no idea who I am. pic.twitter.com/wQPjqCSI83

For your viewing pleasure I present the footage of Liz Truss getting out of her car and the Australian media saying “Who the hell is that?”

when you see liz truss it looks like she doesn’t know what she’s doing which is funny because she really doesn’t know what she’s doing pic.twitter.com/v7MOcKWo9y

Nor do we identify her as the Prime Minister of Great Britain https://t.co/1dCKmmYJlc

I envy them. I love the few seconds I wake up in the morning before I remember who the Prime Minister is.

“It’s hard to identify them. Hmmm – maybe minor royals?” https://t.co/0UHObkGKjr

Aussie TV didn’t recognise Liz Truss and it made everyone’s day better (apart from Liz Truss)
