FUNNY - When the Kids Crash Your BBC Interview. Big Blooper - Adorable children Photobomb a live BBC interview to bother their apologetic dad. Live TV is an unpredictable yet delightful beast. Professor Robert Kelly, an international relations expert, discovered just that Friday during an interview with BBC World News about South Korean President Park Geun-hye's impeachment. Kelly, a widely respected political science professor at Pusan National University in South Korea, was providing his expert opinion on camera, from what appeared to be his home office, when his young children came barreling into the room. As the questioning began, the door opened. A child toddled in. BBC Then another strolled in, this time in a squeaky walker. And then their mother, Jung-a Kim, burst into the scene, skidding around a corner and frantically trying to herd the wayward young people out the door. BBC She knocked books off a table before falling to her knees and grabbing the handle to close the door, finally, behind them all. Children interrupt BBC News interview - BBC News Video by BBC News The interruption, almost slapstick if it had not been real, was over within 40 seconds, during which Professor Kelly veered from apparent mild annoyance to repeated apologies to stifling smiles, while ultimately keeping his composure as he discussed the latest political drama underway in South Korea, where a court had removed President Park Geun-hye from office. The toddler intrusion starts just as the BBC World presenter, James Menendez, starts to ask him a question. “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 … the um … pardon me. My apologies,” Professor Kelly said, closing his eyes and smiling — or grimacing — as the sound of the objects toppling off the table and squeals of protest came from behind him. While the professor appeared to do his best to keep the live broadcast on an even professional keel, the clip was inevitably destined to do what these things do: spread widely across the internet. Yes, it did “get weird.” News organizations and television channels, including Buzzfeed, The Guardian and CNN, picked up the story. Online, many of the comments were sympathetic (“This is TV Gold!” said one), while others said that Professor Kelly had “strong armed” one of the children when reached behind him to repel her advance, all while keeping his eye contact with the camera and continuing to speak. Professor Kelly, who is an expert on politics on the Korean Peninsula, has been a contributing guest on the BBC for many years, as well as on ITN News and Sky. Many of his media appearances, chronicled on his YouTube page, appear to take place from the same room, which features a map on the wall and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. He could not immediately be reached on Friday, but his online biography and website, Asian Security Blog, notes his academic credentials and many contributions to scholarly publications and news organizations about North and South Korea. His wife, according to his personal profile, is a yoga teacher.


J Ford : Mum's run and dive was absolutely epic!

Dawn Mcmillan : That was absolutely hilarious. I laughed so much I played it back several times. Kids do the funniest things!

TriceriCops : That was adorable

Jahmazmine : This is awesome though! Those kids arent stupid. They're freaking rockstars!

Gabriel Thé : the guy was live reporting SERIOUS news on a SERIOUS news channel. do you really think he acted badly for not picking up and giving his kid attention for a short minute? i dont believe he's a bad father. if the children walked naturally and carelessly into his room it means they do it quite often, they just went in there to see their dad, if he was a bad parent their impressions would be much different. on this executive world any minor inconvenience can get you fired.

Tom : The poor man is dying of embarrassment. First his daughter waltzes in as he's holding forth on a serious matter, then she sits on a table causing books to fall off and land with a bump. And to top it all, his wife runs in like Speedy Gonzales to eject the intruders and succeeds only in hogging the attention of every viewer. You can just imagine the conversation at the dinner table. Eat your heart out, Charlie Chaplin. Splendid stuff!

Iram Rahman : I still cry with laughter everyone I watch this....

QuirkyShiny : I never get sick of this - totally gives me the uncontrollable giggles

Nosa R : He pushed his daughter back thinking she won't be seen in the camera and therefore, he thought by pushing her back he will be fine and no one will notice her. It is one of my favorite videos I love it. The father was absolutely professional, interview with BBC is not a joke.

Sarah Smith : Loved the little dance the older one did when first entering the room and the younger sibling following behind would have been cute but the fact it's a baby in a walker somehow upped the adorable factor for me. Moms zoom in cat-woman style was pretty funny. The minor doorway fail was her being anxious and trying to pull both kids through the door at the same time. Are some people really bitching about this? like seriously why?

Moon Chekhov : Absolutely hilarious! Patience, lots of patience from this loving dad and that loving mum.

JHeartoU : I watched so many "children abused" video like throwing kids in the air as "funny videos" made in "America", at that time nobody said child abuse kinda things ... hahahahah Some people have the problem with international marriage or Asian mommy 😉

Noah : She busted in like Ace Ventura!

Diane Baulch : I love the way the toddler struts in the room like he owns the joint. And the way the mother tries to get the kids out discreetly but fails miserably!

MrPathorn : He didn't wear any pants lol

Hello Beech : I love how the kids just walk in like "EYYYYYY"

Emily Mc : everybody calm down...this is jus plain ol' hilarious!!

Cruzan : Lighten up people. This was hilarious.

Catharine Falcon : I just love the first kid coming in and her body language suggests that she is pushing her limits…and then when the baby comes in too. Super funny and perfect storm. I'm a casting director and I couldn't have done a better comical moment. Dad mom, daughter and baby…super funny family..not so private moment

Marianna : Too cute, how the little guy in the walker stormed in like "I am the star of this show".

Jingky Fernandez : Cute family 😍

Sharon 92075 : I've seen this a thousand times! Always cracks me up!

sam am : this really is too funny

Observer778 : Anyone wondering why he didn't turn around and try to help his wife, it was probably because he wasn't wearing any pants XD

Taxtro : The best part is the nanny, who storms into the room and drags them out. XD Typical example of trying to prevent embarrassment, but making it more embarrassing by several orders of magnitude.

alexandra artuso : Loved it! one of the only things that makes me laugh out loud at this time and space. And I think both Mom and Dad were beautiful as well!

Dan Jynx, Your Bobbie's : that stupid basic as meme you used at the end tho....choices

SHÆNISY : I thought of her as a nanny than a mammy.

mcradio43 : HAHAHA, thanks, I needed that!

Just Some Guy with a Mustache : "Ready or not, mothertruckers, here I come!" *rolls in like he runs the place*

Bryan Bryan : That was so cute lol!!!!

Kirsty Rosie : It's just the way the kid walks in that makes this so funny 😂😂

Ricardo Varas : I think that the memes that are shown at the end of the video are wrong. That was funny, the kids are an important part of our society.

Music Mizer : i love kids,..this was very hilarious!

slick67cuda : Everybody thought that Ching-Chang was the nanny .. . 🙄.. .. .... 🤣🤣🤣
