Dad from viral BBC interview calls it a 'comedy of errors'

April AlvarezMar 16, 2017

By now you surely have seen the clip of Professor Robert Kelly conducting an interview with the BBC to discuss the recent headlines out of South Korea, only to be interrupted and run off the rails by his two children and wife. Kelly said: "I saw the video like everybody else".

As Mr. Kelly began his BBC appearance, his wife, Kim Jung-A, was with their two children in the living room, watching it.

Jung-a also clarified that she is the mother - not the nanny - of the children, answering the argument in the social media, asking her role in the family.

After the cheeky interruption, the video of the interview spread like wildfire on the internet - amassing millions of views online and becoming the subject of countless memes and opinion columns around the world. "I saw the video just like everyone else, and it is really amusing".

To-Hawaii flight diverted to Los Angeles after dispute over blanket fee
The plane took off and was in the air when a 66-year-old male passenger became cold and asked if he could have a blanket. But one passenger, who was sat across the aisle from the man, was told by staff the man had threatened the pilot.

Jung-A shared that their kids usually come back to her when they learn that the door to their father's office is locked.

He forgot to lock his office door before a Skype call from the BBC, resulting in his kids' unwanted entry.

It was a question that sparked fierce debate across the great chambers of the internet last week: was the BBC South Korea expert wearing pants during that interview.

"It was some chaos for me".

Washington state unemployment rate holds steady in January
Statewide, Mercer and Auglaize counties were two of six states with unemployment rates at or below 4.5 percent. The 1.3-percent increase was about 0.4-percent higher than the increase from December 2015 to January 2016.

Kelly said he noticed immediately on his screen that his child had entered the room.

"Everybody we know seemed to think it was pretty hysterical", Professor Kelly told the BBC.

"We were anxious that BBC would never call us again", Kelly said. Kelly wore jeans with his dress shirt and tie, and Kim was filming the clip on her phone.

The post was shared by almost 240,000 people and received more than 43,000 comments, most of which thanked the news network and the Kelly family for a good laugh. "Yes, I was mortified, but I also want my kids to feel comfortable coming to me". His little girl was in a "hippity-hoppity mood" after having her birthday party at school.
