Another toddler had become a viral sensation after crashing his dad's Skype interview on live TV.

Professor and film historian Daniel Smith-Rowsey was chatting to Al-Jazeera English's Sohall Rahman about the Golden Globes when a surprise goes decided to drop in.

Five-year-old Rainer popped into the camera frame while his dad discussed the then-upcoming awards ceremony.

And despite his dad's best efforts to keep his son off camera, the little boy was eager to be a part of the family interview - and cuddled up to his dad as the chat went on.

Smith-Rowsey told TODAY:

"I saw him coming in and cursed myself for not locking the door.

"Razor and I had never discussed protocol about this, so I hoped against hope that he would sense that he shouldn’t be on camera.

"When he poked his head in the frame it reminded me (yes, I study film for a living) of movies parodied by the scene in 'Airplane!' when the passengers poke their head in the frame to watch the flight attendant playing guitar."

Thankfully, it all went pretty smooth - and Rainer even got to join in on the conversation.

Smith-Rowsey added:

"At that point I just tried to make the best of what seemed to me a very embarrassing situation.

"I tried to focus on the questions. I hope I didn’t fall too flat on my face."
