LONDON: A recent BBC interview featuring a professor went viral after his kids ‘video-bombed’ the live session, prompting hilarious response and messages on the social media.
Professor Robert Kelly, a Political Science expert at Pusan National University, was being interviewed from his home on the issue of South Korean politics when his two young children walked into the room, followed by a woman rushing inside to take the toddlers away. But it was too late to be ignored. The camera had the hilarious moment recorded and aired live.
Now a group of kids have recreated the viral BBC video in a hilarious fashion.
As in the previous video, the toddler intrusion started just as the BBC World presenter, James Menendez, began asking questions.
“And what will it mean for the wider region — I think one of your children has just walked in,” he said to Professor Kelly.
He continues, gamely: “Do you think relations with the North may change?”
“Umm I would be surprised if they do … pardon me. My apologies,” said Professor Kelly closing his eyes and smiling.
The clip has now been viewed more than 10 million times. Social media users described the video as the “funniest thing the BBC has ever broadcast”.
In response to a Twitter user commenting on the clip, Professor Kelly wrote: “Is this kinda thing that goes ‘viral’ and gets weird?”
