When Baby Scoots into Daddy’s TV Shot

A professor of political science and international relations was being interviewed live on the BBC about the impeachment of South Korean President Park Geun-hye — when his children decided they just had to to see their dad.

As Robert E. Kelly, a professor of political science at Pusan University in South Korea, was answering a serious question about Guen-hye, noting, “The larger question is how do democracies respond to those scandals,” his adorable toddler was starting a hysterical mini-scandal of her own, bouncing in and making a beeline for daddy.

“I think one of your children has just walked in.”

The girl swung her arms happily as she sauntered over. Her dad — who by then had spotted her on his screen — attempted to push her out of the way and continue speaking about serious world issues.

The broadcaster continued to talk as well, but pointed out, “I think one of your children has just walked in.”

Turns out the whole family wanted to hear Daddy talk geopolitics. A baby in a walker soon came waddling in, and followed after her big sister toward Dad.

Seconds later, a woman — most likely the girls’ mother — frantically rushed into the room and grabbed both children.

The mom also knocked books off a table before banging into the door — which had slammed behind her.

As the comedic chaos continued, an older child could be heard saying, “Oww, Mummy!”

Their dad — still on live television — closed his eyes for a few seconds, then apologized. The indefatigable professor then kept right on answering the question at hand while behind him Mom crawled on her hands and knees, trying to shut the door.

A clip of the interview was posted on Twitter — has quickly gone viral.

Professor Kelly was later asked if he minded the video being shared by a BBC team member on Twitter, according to Britain’s The Sun.

“What would that mean, please? Re-broadcasting it on BBC TV, or just here on Twitter?” he responded. “Is this kinda thing that goes ‘viral’ and gets weird?”

Nope — it’s the kind of thing that gets more hilarious the more times you watch it.
