We Texted Our Relatives "It's On" And They Were (Mostly) Clueless

IT'S ON BABY!

Posted on

Today, Minister for Communications Malcolm Turnbull announced he is challenging Prime Minister Abbott's leadership. And Australia knew that it was most certainly ON.

Turnbull has met the PM; requested a party ballot for the leadership.

"It's On" has of course been the catch-cry of journalists and basically everyone on Twitter whenever it is suspected that a leadership challenge might be up in the air.

"NETFLIX N SPILL" #libspill #aupol #itson

It's like all Australian twitter has been doing for the last god knows how many months is hoarding gifs to use in case #ItsOn

To commemorate such an event, the staff at BuzzFeedOz all texted their relatives to let them know "It's On." These are their responses:

Some were a bit... bizarre.

And some, well... they're just looking forward to tomorrow.

Whatever the end result, it is, most certainly, ON!
