First came the backlash, now comes the spoofs: Shortly after a toddler strutted into her father Robert Kelly’s BBC interview and created a viral video sensation, New Zealand comedy show Jono and Ben imagined how a mother would have handled the interruption.
In the parody, a woman speaks with a television anchor about the political crisis in South Korea, when her young daughter (dressed in yellow, but sadly sans-glasses) walks in. But instead of trying to move her daughter out of view, the mother simply hoists the girl up onto her lap and gives her a bottle. Then, the woman gives her other kid a toy, tends to a roasting chicken, cleans a toilet, diffuses a bomb, and deals with her husband as he struggles to find his sock, all while keeping her cool and staying on message.
This video is just one of a series of parodies inspired by the viral clip. There’s also one that imagines how an Indian family would’ve handled the situation, another with a kid playing the father role (and discussing Santa and the North Pole, instead of South Korea), and one in which a man informs the presenter that no, the woman who barges in to take the child away is not the nanny.
