All of you on the internet by now must’ve watched the ‘BBC Dad’ interview in which a professor who was being interviewed via Skype by the BBC gets hilariously interrupted by his two young children. The viral video spurred many debates and discussions online regarding a wide range of issues like racial bias and work-home balance.

But quite a few among us did wonder out loud what would have the scenario been like if the professor in question was a mother instead of a father. This parody interview brilliantly points out just how working moms are often burdened with societal expectations that frankly seem to require superhuman abilities.

The video, which stars Kate Wordsworth, shows just how ridiculously stretched the ‘multitasking mom’ ideal can get. Enjoy a few laughs by clicking on the link below to view the video:
