Robert E. Kelly, a professor of political science at Pusan National University, went on BBC to discuss the South Korean impeachment (educate yourselves, nerds), when he experienced a rather unorthodox interruption: his kids walking into the room during the BBC Skype interview.
Kelly clearly had no idea how to handle the interruption, and attempted to go forward as though nothing was happening (as opposed to just adorably putting the little girl in his lap and carrying on with the interview). But, you have to admit that the whole thing is pretty funny, if a little cringe-y.
My favorite part of this entire video is the enthusiastic way in which his older daughter dances into room, like she own the fucking place. “Doh-dee-doh-de-doh, gonna save Dad from sounding boring on this interview!”
But then, I am also vastly confused by the baby SLIDING INTO THE ROOM. Like, either that baby knew what was up and has expert steering abilities, or the mom (nanny?) literally flung the baby into the room while running in after it. Either way, I’m impressed. And entertained.
Naturally, the video has since taken off, much to Robert Kelly’s chagrin, I’m sure. When asked if he would mind if someone shared the video, Kelly responded by hesitantly asking if this was the “kinda thing that goes ‘viral’ and gets weird.”
Um, you bet your sweet tookus it is, Robert.
Now, please apologize to your daughter for dimming her shine.
