On Thursday, Professor Kelly was joined by his wife Jung-a Kim - who memorably skidded into frame during the now-infamous 2017 clip - and their children for an interview with the BBC about isolating as a family.

His yoga teacher wife told the BBC: "It's very hard to stay in the house for a very long time so we go out for a very short time to the playground, try to stay far away from the people and a couple of times a week we hike the hills".

Flash onward to 2020's coronavirus pandemic, as well as several moms and dads possibly really feel a great deal like Kelly many thanks to an untidy combination of college closures, individuals functioning from residence as well as Zoom seminars.

It wasn't exactly more contained than their star-making viral moment on the BBC three years ago when Marion, followed behind by her baby brother hopping up and down in a mobile baby bouncer, charged into her dad's office.
