Polish historian & political scientist Jerzy Targalski was taking part in a very serious interview on political tension in his home country with Dutch television channel Nieuwsuur when his cat made a decision to take some of the limelight. Targlaski didn't miss a beat. Video of the incident is spreading across the Internet. "The cat does not change, wherever I am, it always climbs on my shoulders, five times a day", Targalski told Dutch news outlet NOS. During the talk, Targlaski looks nearly unfazed by the cat on his shoulders.

Completely unfazed, Targalski calmy continued the interview and only acknowledged the feline's freakish presence to pull its tail away from his face.

Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, a public health inspector, said the boys lost an average of 2kg while they were trapped. England defender Kyle Walker sought out the boys' contact information to send them jerseys.

"The Polish historian & political scientist Jerzy Targalski remained completely unruffled during our interview when this happened", Bouma wrote.

Unfortunately for the world, Targalski's interview was pre-taped so the footage of Lisio crawling up his arm never actually aired on TV. However, a small glimpse of the interview was used in a segment aired on Dutch TV channel NTR, seen below around the 3:56 mark.
