Remember BBC Dad? Yes, we are talking about Professor Robert Kelly, whose interview with the BBC went hilariously viral, back in 2017. Thanks to his lovely kids which netizens called as one of the best video-bombs ever! Ever since then Kelly dubbed as ‘BBC Dad’ and his interview became one of the most memorable interviews, not just that year but for years to come. Now, two years later, Sky News posted an interview with Professor Kelly about South Korea and the Coronavirus outbreak, but all internet could ponder was “where are the kids!” Tweeple seem to miss the children of beloved ‘BBC Dad’ Kelly as his recent interview went viral on social media.

For those who are living under the rock or cannot really recall the viral sensation BBC Dad, here is a brief. In 2017, Professor Robert Kelly was interviewed by BBC World News to discuss the impeachment of then South Korea’s President Park Geun-Hye. Kelly would always lock the door of his study whenever the interviews were live. But that year, he forgot. And it gave the viewers the most memorable experience. During his interview, his elder daughter first came inside the room, followed by a toddler son, totally unaware that their dad was live on a global platform. Kelly’s wife frantically grabs the kids and rushes out of the room. Ever since then, Professor Kelly was gloriously dubbed as the ‘BBC Dad.’ Pig Follows Journalist Live Reporting on Floods in Greece And Bites Him.

Where are the kids? As serious as the interview definitely was, viewers hoping that kids would pop up from behind, as Professor Kelly went live on the same setting. It seems like he has figured out how to properly lock the children out during interviews. But viewers are disappointed! Locking out the kids surely makes the interview smoother, but arguably less entertaining.
