Everyone’s talking about “BBC Dad” but we should be talking about the real stars of everybody’s favorite Skype interview, BBC Dad’s kids.
Korea expert Robert Kelly held his first press conference Wednesday since becoming a viral sensation, all thanks to his two children, who decided to crash his BBC interview. And this new media appearance has shown us, beyond doubt, that his kids still DGAF — and that they are our heroes.
How Kelly managed to keep an extremely serious face while discussing the impeachment of South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye via webcam while his wife flailed to remove their children is beyond us, and at the press conference on Wednesday the kids still had us all LOLing.
“We love our children very much and are happy that our family blooper, our family error there on television brought so much laughter to so many people,” Kelly said seriously, while his two children were busy living their best lives.
His 4-year-old daughter Marion was showing off her funky glasses and sucking on a lollipop, already bored and fed up with her life in the spotlight.
To show how much she did not care about any of this, when the camera cut to her she made the biggest power move and laid her head down on the freaking desk. When she decided to join the press conference again, she gave a stare of boredom so withering that those at home couldn’t help but feel her pain.
“We thought it was a disaster,” Kelly went on, explaining he profusely apologized to the BBC, but like WHY, DUDE? Your kids are great, they are the bright spots of the year. In fact, we should loosen up a little bit more and be like them.
Bored of his dad’s talking and feeling a tad left out, 8-month-old James commanded the room in his bright yellow onesie, calling the press conference to a close by reaching for something on the table and making some powerful gurgling noises.
BBC Dad’s kids 4 lyfe.
