The hilarious video of Professor Robert Kelly being interrupted by his adorable children and panicked wife was everywhere.
The family have since given a press conference to clear up a few rumours about the initial Interview
– but the parents were upstaged by their kids again.
Kelly said: ‘A lot of parents wrote to us saying, “We have two kids too we understand what it’s like to balance work and life.” And “it’s sort of a fun blooper.”
‘And stuff like that. SO I would say 90% of the comments, 95% maybe more were positive at least that we saw.’
In a statement the family have spoken of their unease about becoming viral stars after kids Marion and James burst into the dad’s study before their mother, Jung-a-Kim quickly dragged them out.
The family wrote: ‘We were unsure how to respond, and as the attention accelerated, we became genuinely unnerved. We had no idea how to handle this.’
Jung-a Kim added: ‘I can’t remember the situation very well. I was really in a panic. The only think I was thinking about was getting the child out.’
The interview, like others featuring the children, did not go exactly to plan as Marion ran off with her mum in hot pursuit.
At one moment the newly-famous dad (and Korean expert) told his daughter ‘Stand up baby don’t be a silly goose.’
Adorably the four-year-old hit back claiming: ‘I’m not a silly a goose.’

Other ‘rumours’ that Robert wanted to clear up, aside from wearing trousers, was why he reached out to his daughter when she came in.
He explained he was actually trying to slide her to where the toys were kept underneath the desk.
