Robert E Kelly, a professor of political science, was supposed to be talking about the resignation of South Korea's president Park Geun-hye. However, he forgot to lock the door behind him, resulting in both of his kids crashing his interview.

It spawned one of the greatest GIFs of all time.

And when it went viral across the world, he responded with this tweet when BBC News asked if they could repeat the clip on television.

"Goes viral and gets weird."

Oh, and your eyes can't help looking at this corner of the screen, just in case something is about to happen.

He said: "This whole thing happened because I was tired, it was the day the South Korean president had been impeached, I had done five interviews beforehand and I just forgot to push the button, man."

He then said: "Even now, when I push the button, my kids come down the hallway and they pound on the door ... If you ever watch me doing a TV video and I'm talking very loud, it's because I'm covering up my kids pounding on the door, because my wife lost track of them again."

"And they come running down the hall and they pound on the door [and go] 'DADDY DADDY DADDY.'""Yeah, that's my family, man. My kids are very energetic."
