In 2017, a political science professor transformed before our eyes into "BBC Dad" and broke us out of our stagnant, doldrum lives when his spirited children marched into his office during a live television interview via Skype.
Kelly, who had appeared on the news in order to share his expertise about South Korea, was interrupted when his young child burst into the room behind him, followed by his desperate wife.
On Thursday, Professor Kelly was joined by his wife Jung-a Kim - who memorably skidded into frame during the now-infamous 2017 clip - and their children for an interview with the BBC about isolating as a family.
South Korea has emerged as a role model for dealing with the threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The country has lifted some of its strictest guidelines, allowing children to take some of their energy out on hikes, said Kelly. Kelly admitted that's a big challenge at the moment - the strain of working from home and juggling work and family is, he says, "really, really tough".More news: Tesla's shuttered solar facility to become COVID-19 ventilator factory
'We try to go out and see the flowers and the trees and they can shout and scream'.
"I think the South Koreans have done really well", said Kelly. You don't see the kind of things you've seen in the United States, with like people in a hurry beaches and people refusing to stay out of subways and stuff like that.
"The South Koreans have actually responded really well and that is why the curve is flattened, the cases are down to only 100 a day, it's been pretty successful".
"That's one thing you can never apologise for now", Eades said. "It is basically impossible for me to work now".More news: Kourtney Kardashian does not like spotlight on her love life #50400
"Excited about being on telly", the BBC News anchor said as the kids got busy. "It's part of the scene." the interviewer jokes. "Be kind to your employees with kids".
Last week, Kelly tweeted a photo of himself at home with James sitting on his shoulders and draped over his head.
"Many of the comments we received were from parents who had had similar experiences, such as locking themselves in the bathroom so their kids could not interrupt a radio interview", Kelly wrote in a 2018 article for the Interpreter.
He said the reaction on social media had been astonishing - and mostly positive - and he had been forced to switch off Twitter and Facebook alerts and put his phone on airplane mode. We love our children very much, but I suppose it made our bond with them tighter'.More news: BC announces $500-per-month rental supplement, temporary halt on evictions
