He's an expert in his field... but right now, he's best known as the professor whose kids interrupted his live interview on the BBC over the weekend. For me, the most painful part was watching his wife try to get the kids out of the room without disturbing him even more. It didn't work.
It took him a bit to realize he'd gone viral...
@David_Waddell What would that mean, please? Re-broadcasting it on BBC TV, or just here on Twitter? Is this kinda thing that goes 'viral' and gets weird?— Robert E Kelly (@Robert_E_Kelly) March 10, 2017
Some people had fun with it. Others were sympathetic and even quite amused.
@Robert_E_Kelly Give them a hug from all of us who watched laughed, cringed, and saw ourselves in your shoes. Have a great weekend.— (((Ant Miller))) (@meeware) March 10, 2017
