How often do we get a chance to give commands to a higher official, especially if its a country's President or Prime Minister even in a democratic country? Less likely. However, a man, who recently interrupted the Australian Prime Minister's press conference has now become the talk of the cyber world.
During Scott Morrison's early morning press meet to announce a new stimulus package for home renovations at Googong in New South Wales state, an unidentified person yelled at them. He was interrupted by a house owner, who asked the PM and the reporters to step away from his lawn, which he claims to have been newly reseeded.
"Hey, can everyone get off the grass please," the man is heard saying in the 29-seconds video that is doing the rounds on social media. Morrison was quick to respond saying: "Sure, let's just move back from there. All good. That's all good. Thanks." After giving a thumbs up to the unnamed man, the PM continued his press meet.

Social Media Reactions
Netizens have been appreciating the guts of the man to respond in such a way to a country's prime minister. "I want to buy that man a beer," commented a Twitter user. Meanwhile, many others are of the opinion that an incident like this will happen only in Australia. "If that happened in the USA, the guy would have come out dolled up like Rambo and probably started a small war over it!" another netizen said.
