Here's What Really Happened When Those Kids Crashed Their Dad's BBC Interview

Professor Robert E. Kelly was giving an interview on BBC World about the impeachment of the South Korean President, when his toddler barged into the room and start playing. She was followed by her nine-month-old brother, James, who rolled in on a baby stroller, and then their frantic mother, Jung-a Kim, who clattered into the room in hot pursuit of her escaped children.

"I mean, it was terribly cute", he said. She said she was initially anxious that the botched interview would ruin her husband's career and prevent him from making other media appearances.

Kelly normally locks his office door when doing interviews from home, but this time, he forgot, the Journal said. "I heard she leaving but I couldn't find them around me and I tried to check the door", Jung-A explained.

"It was chaos for me", Kim told the Journal.

The video has been viewed on the BBC Facebook more than 84 million times and covered by countless news agencies around the globe.

He continued: "If you watch the tape I was sort of struggling to keep my own laughs down".

His death on March 9, 1997 came approximately six months after that of Tupac Shakur, who died in the same manner in Las Vegas. However, a clue to who killed the 24-year-old may be in a video of the shooting.

After they did so, however, they were overwhelmed; at one point, Mr. Kelly said he had to put his phone on airplane mode.

She said: "First my sister called and then we spoke to Robert, who was a little disturbed - probably just embarrassed".

"An overwhelming [amount of comments] that have been sent to us has been positive", Kelly says. They were "mortified" at first, Kelly said, but quickly took the incident in stride. "It's amusing", Kelly added of the clip.

"I made this minor mistake that turned my family into YouTube stars", Kelly added.

Kelly hoped people would simply enjoy it for what it is: just a video "catching a regular family off-guard".

The "arguing" Kim referred to has been a lot of talk over the past few days about racial stereotyping, and the role it might have played in people assuming she was the nanny.
