Democrat Joe Biden appeared to forget the name of Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison, referring to him as “that fella down under" after looking at his prepared notes.

Biden's brain freeze came during an exchange between the two leaders and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson while discussing the defence deal struck by allies to aid Australia in acquiring nuclear-powered submarines.

As Biden turned to the large screen Morrison was on, he said:

“Thank you, Boris (Johnson), and I want to thank uh… that fella Down Under."

“Thank you very much, pal… appreciate it prime minister.”

WATCH:

Seemingly noticing Biden's flub, the Australian leader smiled politely and gave a thumbs up.

Biden's gaffe didn't go unnoticed on social media, as some described Biden as “embarrassing” and “hopeless."

Soon after, the Twitter hashtag #THATFELLOWDOWNUNDER began trending.

The press conference was called to make public the new three-nation security pact, named AUKUS, which involves the UK, the U.S, and Australia.

The security partnership will see the UK and the U.S. combine to help Australia build a new fleet of nuclear submarines.

Morrison added the next 18 months would include “an intense examination of what we need to do to exercise our nuclear stewardship responsibilities here in Australia.”

Earlier this year, Biden forgot key details from the official European trip he took just two weeks after taking it.

Biden's failure to recall the details of the trip during a virtual fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee when he recalled five days that never happened while participating in both the G-7 and NATO summits.

“And I just got back, by the way, from Europe after being there for, I guess, 13 days,” he said of his trip, which actually lasted eight days.

“And I met for five days with the G-7 nations,” he said of the summit that was actually three days long in Cornwall, U.K.

“I also — and then there were four others that were there — India, Australia. And I won’t go through all the detail; it’d be too boring for you,” he claimed.

“And then I went to a NATO meeting with all the — all the NATO representatives there and the heads of state.

"And then I went to meet with Putin,” he said of his vain meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
