Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week, chances are you saw the absolutely hilarious clip of a BBC interview gone haywire.

Just in case you haven’t seen we’ll recap. BBC World News were interviewing professor Robert Kelly about the recent impeachment of South Korean president Park Guen-hye, so fairly serious stuff. As Kelly is based in South Korea the interview took place via Skype with him in his bedroom, and his kids decided to buss into the room and create some internet comedy gold.

Whether it’s the toddler’s dance, the baby making a perfectly timed entry or the mum’s action movie worthy slide into the room, the whole clip is total jokes, and now we have some background as to why the whole thing went down.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the professor’s mum Ellen Kelly reckons the whole thing was slyly her fault. She says, “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.”

Looks like even his mum is catching jokes from the whole situation as she says she found the situation “just hilarious”.

Maybe next time invest in a bedroom door lock, Rob.
