Professor Robert E. Kelly, a political-science professor at Pusan National University in South Korea, was in the middle of an interview with the BBC on Friday when his two toddlers burst on the scene and captivated the audience.
In the video below, Kelly appears to be in a home office with the door closed. As the questioning began, the door opened and in popped a toddler wearing a bright yellow shirt. Then, seconds later, another arrives in a rolling walker. “Pardon me,” Kelly said. “My apologies.”
As his two kids innocently crash his interview, Kelly looks noticeably embarrassed and struggled to maintain his composure. Meanwhile, laughter reportedly erupted from the BBC set.
Immediately, a woman is seen sneaking into the room to quickly retrieve and escort the two kids out of their dad’s office.
A BBC producer posted a tweet to Kelly’s account asking him about reposting the video, to which Kelly responded:
“What would that mean, please? Rebroadcasting it on BBC TV, or just here on Twitter? Is this kinda thing that goes ‘viral’ and gets weird?”
Since the interview aired, it has gone viral and has elicited amusement and empathy from parents around the world who can identify with Kelly’s struggle to work from home while parenting toddlers.
Kelly had earlier alerted his followers on Twitter about his scheduled appearance on the show.
