Reddit Recap Reveals That Aussies Went Nuts For The Tillies, Eurovision And, Erm, Finance

Reddit Recap Reveals That Aussies Went Nuts For The Tillies, Eurovision And, Erm, Finance

Reddit’s annual Recap report has revealed the issues and moments that captured Australia’s collective mind over 2023 with, naturally, the Matildas featuring high on the list.

The inaugural Australia-hosted Women’s World Cup saw Aussies glued to the footy (or, indeed soccer) with one enterprising user capturing the moment that Cortnee Vine scored the winner against France on a flight.

However, Sydney-siders went similarly crazy for a picture of the World Pride march across the Harbour Bridge and Voyager (Australia’s representatives for Eurovision, if you were unaware) stopped in for an Ask-Me-Anything session, garnering lots of attention — even if the band finished in ninth place. It even left Myf Warhurst red-faced after she asked during the show “Who’s going to Reddit for Eurovision stuff?”

Two slightly more out-there stories, and one potentially out-of-this-world story, attracted a lot of attention. A mysterious object that appeared on a beach in WA was revealed to be the third stage of India’s PSLV rocket after serious sleuthing. Others, however, maintained that it was, in fact, the vessel of choice for Power Rangers baddie Rita Repulsa.

The other out-there story was a discussion about the financial status of Bluey‘s parents, showing that Aussies are still worried about the cost of living, even if it affects people who aren’t real.

Confession: it bothers me that the Heelers are wealthy.
