If you were on the Internet on Friday, there’s a good chance you were introduced to Robert Kelly. And his children. And his wife.
From an office in his home, Kelly was on BBC to discuss a developing situation in South Korea. But it was his children who wandered in and stole the show.

The video quickly became a viral hit, overshadowing Kelly’s insight on Korea. A professor in political science in Korea, Kelly has shared his knowledge in many other, less entertaining interviews.
His path to professor and accidental viral star went through Ohio State, where Kelly earned a PhD in political science in 2005, according to his blog.
The Columbus Dispatch first pointed out Kelly’s scarlet and gray connection.
