Last week, a father of two lived out a professional parent’s worst nightmare when his kids crashed his live BBC News video interview. Now, a spoof of the chuckle-worthy moment imagines how a working mom would handle the situation.

In a Facebook video from the New Zealand comedy show Jono and Ben, the woman breezes through questions about the political crisis in South Korea while caring for her children, cooking a turkey, steam-cleaning a shirt, helping her husband find a sock, cleaning a toilet and even defusing a bomb.

Much like the original video featuring professor Robert Kelly, a little girl dressed in a yellow sweater is seen dancing into the room as the sharply dressed mom speaks with the interviewer.

Rather than attempting to keep her at bay, the woman lifted the little girl onto her lap and fed her.

Soon, a little baby is seen rolling in on a walker. But the tot is no match for the working mom who has a toy on hand.

“Sorry. You do look rather busy there,” the interviewer says. “We can reschedule.”

But the working mom isn’t having it.

After taking care of the kids, and a slew of other household chores, the woman explains that “the future of South Korea really hangs in the balance”— while defusing the bomb.

The woman finishes the interview without breaking a sweat and heads off to help her husband find the lost sock.

Here are three tips to avoid spoiling you kids, one, start an allowance system in you home. When you constantly buy for your children,it gives them a false illusion that you have an infinite supply of money, An allowance will help your child learn money is earned through work. Two,don't try to keep up with the Joneses. Ask yourself are you really buying this for your child or you are just trying to keep up with the neighbours, be ruthlessly realistic with your own numbers. [MUSIC] If you've seen that you're child has shown signs of jealousy because they don't have the latest toy that their pals do, tackle it. Try and shift the protest from the material item they don't have to the non-monetary treasure your family provides like extra time, love and comfort. Use instances of material jealousy as an opportunity teachers kids about saving money for big purchases. Three, make your younger children do chores and require that your older children look for a summer job. Chores and summer jobs instill a work ethic and will allow your child to learn some of their first lessons about how to spend and save their own money. Raising kids to be well adjusted adults is tough but you've got them moms and dads. [MUSIC] COINAGE. Life, well spent. Presented by GEICO. [BLANK_AUDIO]
