If you're wondering what a "zoom bomb" is, it's a term for unwanted invaders disrupting a Zoom video call. If you're Cara Fields, you know all about this.
"My husband has a new quarantine hobby of Zoom bombing my conference calls. The colleagues I'm meeting with always see him before I do. Never a dull moment in this household," she shared on LinkedIn.
Fields, the Marketing Chief of Staff at Elanco, an animal health company, showcased her husband's sneaky yet hilarious antics for the world to see, and inevitably, laugh.
"He has always loved wearing ridiculous things in public to embarrass me," said Cara. "So when I converted our dining room into an office where my camera faced the dining room table, he saw a virtual opportunity to embarrass me during the pandemic."
In the beginning, her husband was wearing things that he had around the house like Hawaiian shirts and cowboy hats. Soon, though, he needed to up the ante.
"Friends started mailing him Halloween costumes. I’m told that more costumes are in transit!" she added.
As Zoom video calls have become the new norm for most company meetings, we expect to see this funny little routine repeated by others now. You know what they say, imitation is a form of flattery.
