This is what happens when a woman gets interrupted during a BBC interview.

South Korea expert Robert Kelly might have had a pretty standard BBC interview back in 2017 had his children not interrupted, creating an immediate viral sensation.

In a nutshell, Kelly tried to power through a serious discussion about South Korean politics while his young daughter wanders in with a cheese stick, followed by her infant sibling.

Before long, Kelly’s wife rushes into the room and whisks the kids away.


Most saw the video as hilarious, while in other spheres of the internet, things got a little .. weird.

Whether you saw the spectacle as hysterically funny or mildly disturbing (or some combination of both), many of us were still left wondering, what would the situation look like had a working mother been interrupted?

New Zealand based YouTube show Jono and Ben asked just that.

In an undeniably funny spoof of the original viral video, a woman conducts a straight-faced BBC interview all while feeding a toddler, roasting a chicken, cleaning a toilet, steam cleaning a shirt, and defusing a bomb.

But the pièce de résistance is when her husband comes in looking for a lost sock. Classic.

It’s extreme in all the best ways and makes a clear point about societal expectations.

When a man takes time away from his job to take care of his kids, it’s called babysitting.

When a woman does it, she’s simply being a mom.

With over a million views gained in its first 24 hours, and more than 21 million views since, the spoof clearly struck a chord.

As one woman wrote in the comments section:

“As a politician with 3 young kids, this really is my life. Except I was breastfeeding my baby during meetings. And I never iron/steam anything.”

Why should a superintendent get a raise while teachers in the same district struggling to make ends meet see their paychecks flatline — year after year after year?

Teacher Deyshia Hargrave begged the question. Minutes later, she was handcuffed and placed in the backseat of a cop car.

The scene was captured below by YouTube user Chris Rosa, who attended a board meeting for Vermilion Parish Schools in Louisiana.

You can watch Hargrave begin speaking about 33 seconds in. The situation starts becoming contentious around 6:35 minutes. Hargrave is arrested at 8:35, and then walked outside in handcuffs and placed in the back of police vehicle. (Story continues below.)



"We work very hard with very little to maintain the salaries that we have," Hargrave, who teaches middle school language arts, said during a public comment portion of the meeting, stating that she's seen classroom sizes balloon during her time at the school with no increased compensation. "We're meeting those goals, while someone in that position of leadership [the superintendent] is getting raise? It's a sad, sad day to be a teacher in Vermilion Parish."
