Remember that viral BBC interview? These 8 working from home video chat fails are even funnier.

The year was 2017. Yep, it was really that long ago.

Professor Robert Kelly of Pusan National University in South Korea was talking about very important, academic things in a live cross interview with the BBC from his home office. All was very serious. All was very BBC-like.

Then wandered in a rogue toddler and a baby-on-wheels, both of whom cried while being hastily whisked out of frame by their mum. The hilarious footage went viral immediately.

WATCH: You can relive the hilarious BBC interview fail in the video below. Post continues after video.
