Dad of the moment, Robert E Kelly has appeared on TV again, this time intentionally with his family.

After initially ignoring the media's calls since their adorable video-bomb went viral, Robert, his wife Jung-A Kim and kids Marion and James appeared on the same BBC program to explain the sequence of the events that led to the kids busting in on dad's important interview.

“We watched it multiple times, too, and our families have watched it as well," explains Richard. "Everybody we know seems to think it's pretty hysterical."

Here's the key things you need to know:

  • Yes, everyone was wearing pants in the video.
  • They were worried that the "BBC would never call" them again after the interview.
  • Richard normally locks the door, but he forgot that day. Needless to say, he’ll be locking it in future.
  • Marion saw her dad on the TV in the loungeroom and recognising the room, went to go find him
  • Jung-A Kim was filming the TV and had to race in after her
  • About all the negative comments and debate, Jing-a says it best: "I hope people just enjoy it and not argue over this"
  • In a separate interview with the Wall Street Journal, Robert said his daughter was “in a hippity-hoppity mood that day because of the school party". Bless her!
  • They also said they felt “pretty uncomfortable” that people assumed Jung-A Kim was the nanny.
