”She was just stuck like this the entire meeting.”
Video meetings and conferences have become the norm in recent weeks, as people the world over work from home to stop the spread of Covid-19.
And it’s fair to say that some workers have adapted to their new life at home better than others.
One boss from the US, Lizet Ocampo, inadvertently provided a laugh for hundreds of thousands of people, when she 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.

“I yam glad this is making folks laugh at this time. Please stay planted at home and safe! For more needed laughs, follow my favorite comedian @cristela9. Potate out.”
