*A toddler, an infant and an unidentified woman have gone viral for their hilarious interruption of a live television interview on BBC News.
The segment dealt with Thursday’s impeachment of South Korean president Park Geun-hye. Regional expert and Pusan National University professor Robert Kelly was being interviewed from his home via Skype when his children suddenly burst through the door behind him like they were ready to party.
First a toddler comes in dancing toward his daddy. Then, as Kelly is trying to push him back, another baby in a walker barrels into the room like, “What yall doing?”
Capping it off is a woman who flies in and forcefully drags the kiddies out of the room, getting caught up in the doorframe in the process.
“My apologies” was all Robert Kelly could say.
A clip of the interview was posted on Twitter and has quickly gone viral. See it above (via YouTube).
Lee Sherry wrote on Twitter: “Did anybody just watch BBC world news interview regarding Korean president … children walked in. Maid dragged children out? Hilarious.”
Tony Brown said: “I just can’t stop watching it on repeat.”
Een Hollywood superstar Tom Hanks enjoyed the moment on social media.

Afterwards Professor Kelly was asked if he minded the video being shared by a BBC team member on Twitter.
He responded: “What would that mean, please? Re-broadcasting it on BBC TV, or just here on Twitter? Is it this kind of thing that goes ‘viral’ and gets weird?”
