If you scrolled through any social media or even switched on the telly yesterday, it’s almost guaranteed that you came across this hilarious video. 

Professor Robert Kelly was being interviewed by BBC World News about the impeachment of South Korean president Park Guen-hye.

It was all going swimmingly, right up until his two young children burst into the room one after the other.

But ever the professional, Professor Kelly managed to keep his composure while his wife managed to save his blushes in hilarious style.

The clip soon went viral, amassing tens of millions of views in the process.

But many were wondering, why did they come storm in at possibly the worst time ever? Well their grandmother Ellen Kelly has told the Daily Mail it may have been all her fault.

It turns out that the grandparents usually Skype with Robert, his wife Jung-a Kim and the two children from the same place as he was carrying out the BBC interview.

She told the Daily Mail:

Robert usually Skypes with us from his home office, which is where he did the interview. The kids probably heard voices coming from the computer and assumed it was us. It was just hilarious.

Ellen, from University Heights, outside Cleveland, Ohio, explained that her son isn’t a stranger to televised interviews, having previously spoken to CNN, CNBC, Sky News, and ITN.

“I just hope that he gains recognition for his expertise rather than for this – as great as it all is,” she added.

We hope so too!
