BBC interview interrupted by kids

Best thing on the internet today.

Because we have the internet, TV interviews can be easily conducted from someone’s home office in front of their computer. (We at Recode do it all the time.)

But that also means your kids can crash the interview and disrupt a heady discussion about the impeachment of South Korea President Park Geun-hye. The above clip comes from the BBC. It gets even better as a toddler rolls through followed by their frantic mother sliding in “Risky Business”-style to retrieve them. The whole thing is a piece of art.

The man being interviewed appears to be Robert Kelly, an associate professor of political science at Pusan National University in South Korea, who mostly keeps a straight face.

Best thing on the internet today. (Analyst Ben Thompson of Stratechery performs a humorous exegesis on the video.)
