This Professor Was Giving A Serious Interview About Politics When He Was Adorably Interrupted

"I think one of your children just walked in ..."

Political science professor Robert E. Kelly was doing a live interview with BBC World News about South Korean politics on Friday, discussing the impeachment of President Park Geun Hye.


Midway through the conversation, however, his two adorable kids enter the room.

First, his daughter lets herself in. Kelly doesn't appear to notice until his interviewer says, "I think one of your children just walked in ..."

Then Kelly's other kid enters the room in a walker followed quickly by his wife, who quickly escorts the kids out of the room and shuts the door.

Kelly remains calm throughout the interruption and apologizes before continuing to talk about South Korea's policies.

Since the video was posted on March 10, it has quickly gone viral. The video has a staggering 83 million views on the Newsbeat Facebook page after only a few days.

Parents are writing how they understand Kelly's experience while non-parents have said that the moment has made them smile.

One commenter wrote on Facebook, "I have laughed so hard on this. That little one in the walker is like 'WHERE'S DA PARTY AT?!!!' Cutest clip ever."

Another wrote, "If this doesn't sum up having kids, I'm not sure what does! How funny! When the baby rolled in at the back in the munch mobile thing ... Got to love kids."

Kelly also quickly realized that the video had the potential to go viral.

The BBC reported that when Kelly was asked for permission to share the sweet clip via Twitter, he asked, "Is this kinda thing that goes 'viral' and gets weird?"
