You probably watched the viral BBC interview that saw Korea expert Professor Robert Kelly’s TV appearance gatecrashed by his children. They say you should never work with children or animals — Riga Mayor Nils Ušakovs discovered the second half of this phrase when his recent online Q&A session welcomed a feline visitor.
According to ABC, about 17 minutes into the broadcast a cat walked into shot and started to drink from Mr Ušakovs’s mug.
The question is, did the cat simply want a drink and a moment in the spotlight, or could this be the cutest publicity stunt ever? Either way, Mr Ušakovs has received some unusual bonus exposure ahead of Latvia’s June local elections.
