With many places currently on lockdown, life as we know it has changed drastically. The vast majority of people are currently working from home in an attempt to help limit the spread of COVID-19. And it’s fair to say this time away from the office has proved tricky for some.
Recently, a priest in Italy attempted to live stream a mass but found himself experiencing some rather amusing technical difficulties. This week, Lizet Ocampo, the Political Director at People For The American Way found herself making a similar type of blunder when she accidentally turned herself into a potato on-screen during a video meeting – and couldn’t figure out how to undo it.
One of her employees, Rachele Clegg, captured a screengrab of the hilarious moment and shared it on Twitter, where it quickly went viral. She wrote: “My boss turned herself into a potato on our Microsoft teams meeting and can’t figure out how to turn the setting off, so she was just stuck like this the entire meeting.”
More than 500,000 people have liked the post with over 122,000 people retweeting. Microsoft even replied to her post saying it was “TOO FUNNY!”
