Topless Dad Interrupts Daughter's News Broadcast As She Works From Home
| Last updated
While many of us have adjusted well to working from home, one news reporter in America hasn't found things quite so straightforward - having been interrupted by her dad as he walked into shot topless.
SNN reporter Jessica Lang had asked her mum Diana to act as her stand-in camera operator while she presented a news segment from her kitchen at home.
Everything seemed to be going fairly smoothly under the circumstances, but suddenly Jessica had to stop her broadcast, having had some sort of signal from her new camerawoman.
"What did you do, Mom?" Jessica asks frustratedly in the clip, not knowing her mother has spotted Mr Lang wandering into shot in the background.
Jessica then turns around and spots her dad behind her, popping a t-shirt on and looking fairly bemused.
"Dad, holy c**p!" she exclaims, as her father tries to slink back out of the room.
Jessica has since tweeted the amusing clip, which has gone viral with 11,000 likes and 1,200 retweets.
She wrote: "Work from home they said, it'll be fine they said."
Of course, the cynics among us may question whether or not the scenes were staged, given that the camera appears to be inexplicably pointing at the doorway her father comes from while only giving Jessica half the frame.
But either way, it's a light-hearted clip that we probably all need right now, so I'm all for it.
Many others clearly feel the same, with one person commenting: "I'm having beers with Mr. Lang when this is all over."
Someone else said: "I needed this laugh! watching over and over."
A third added sympathetically: "Lol... so the poor guy can't walk around in his house in his underwear anymore."
Mind you, I think we all agree nothing will ever top the moment Professor Robert Kelly had his interview gatecrashed by his two children while live on air.
While it's now been three years since the clip hit headlines, it still remains one of the world's favourite viral videos.
The family even returned recently to be interviewed about life in South Korea during the coronavirus pandemic, with Robert admitting he'd found it slightly 'tough' keeping his kids entertained.
His two children - who can see themselves on the monitor - then start playing up; fidgeting; poking their dad's face; ruffling his hair; gnawing on his hand; and even smacking the microphone.
Despite the best efforts of Robert and his wife at keeping their offspring under control, at one point the little lad just says 'I've had enough' and jumps off his mum's lap, clambers underneath her chair and does one - returning later with a video game in hand.
