Our favourite BBC Dad parody so far

A week after we first saw the amazing BBC Dad interview, New Zealand’s Jono and Ben comedy show have released our favourite parody yet – how a mum would have handled the situation. Proving the hype isn't dying down anytime soon, if you loved the original as much as we did, we're sure this will make your day. 


As we all know, being a mum means multi-tasking, and that’s exactly what Robert Kelly’s female equivalent does here. Feeding her daughter, calming the baby, removing chicken from the oven, cleaning the toilet and defusing a bomb, all whilst talking about the political crisis in South Korea.


To all those multi-tasking mothers’ out there who have time to work from home, take care of the kids and find missing socks – we salute you.

    I'm all in favour of mothers and don't think fathers are as good with children. Nevertheless, this parody is unfair -- the father in the orginal did not have a bottle at his side to calm the child with. Taking an excited child on your lap is always a risky business and I think most mothers would have done exactly what he did -- put out an arm to keep her away. Children need to learn boundaries, and women are as good at teaching them as fathers. It's not a good idea to make this a man vs woman issue, not even as a parody.
