Hawthorn was well prepared to announce they'd landed Jarman Impey from Port Adelaide, whipping up a very clever video.
The mock Facebook chat features Hawthorn skipper Jarryd Roughead telling his teammates the deal was done.
"Boyyyyyyssssss, big news," they write.
It gets some good responses from the players...except a little confusion from James Frawley.
"Darren's back?" he writes.
That didn't go down too well.
"No chip you spud," Cyril Rioli writes. "Jarman Impey."
The group then moves onto something even touchier - the future of Luke Hodge.
"Oi..... has anyone seen Hodgey?" Jack Gunston writes.
It's followed by a few looks of confusion, before Luke Hodge posts a wave and a lion emoji before leaving the group chat.
As Gunston wrote? Classic.
