You’ve probably seen it on your timeline because it became an internet sensation ever since: Professor Robert Kelly being interviewed by BBC in his study when suddenly, his two kids swaggered in, along with his wife, who hilariously tried to retrieve the kids, to complete the setting.
“Everybody we know seems to think it’s pretty hysterical. We understand why people find it enjoyable… It’s funny,” he mentions.
His wife, Jung-a Kim, said, “We laughed a lot, but still we were worried a little bit more.”
“We were worried actually that the BBC would never call us again. That was our first response – mortification that we had completely blown our relationship with you.”
“She was in a hippity-hoppity mood that day because of the school party,” Kelly tells the Wall Street Journal on his little one with the yellow sweater.
Everything was cute and all, until people wrongly assumed his wife was the nanny. When Kelly was asked about it, he said he was “pretty uncomfortable.”
However, Jung-A played it down. “I hope people just enjoy it and don’t argue over this thing,” she said. “I’m not the nanny – that’s the truth – so I hope they stop arguing.”
Nonetheless, the happy mistake was the cutest moment in BBC interview history.
