Hilarious Moment Kid Interrupts His Mum On Live TV To Ask For Biscuits
In this new age of zoom and video calls, mishaps happen: there was the naked man who appeared in shot during one woman's TV interview, and the girl who carried on filming as she went to the loo during a work conference call...
But the purest and most entertaining video call blunders always involve kids - and last night we witnessed a corker.
Appearing on Sky News, foreign affairs editor Deborah Haynes was in the middle of an interview with Mark Austin when her son mischievously walked into the room.
Completely unphased by the fact she was on a rather important Zoom call, her little boy had a very important snack request, and it just couldn't wait.
Watch his cheeky interruption below:
"David Cameron was talking about... Oh I'm really sorry, that's my son arriving, really embarrassed, sorry," Sarah said as she realised she had a visitor.
Turning to her son, she told him: "Hold on one second," before once again turning to the camera and apologising.
Deborah's son then tapped his mum and asked: "Can I have two biscuits?", to which the exasperated journalist responded: "Yes, you can have two biscuits."
"Really sorry about that," she then said, again, to the camera.
Back in the studio, Mark laughed, and told viewers at home: "We'll leave Deborah Haynes there, in full flow with some family duties."
Poor Deborah was then left to fetch her son's biccies, with her interview cut short.
Reacting to the moment online, viewers shared their amusement, and praised Deborah's son for cornering her on national TV, when she couldn't say no.
"Top negotiating tactic by @haynesdeborah son on Sky News to get himself two biscuits," one wrote.
As another agreed: "Asking your mom for two biscuits whilst she's live on Sky News is a new level of clever".
"Kid here has played an absolute blinder. Wait til Mum gets on Sky News and will agree to almost anything before leveraging your biscuit needs," a third penned.
"Crafty negotiations from the small fella."
Ah, live TV. You've gotta love it.
