Sometimes Zoom doesn't always work perfectly, and for one student, a hilarious technical difficulty has surprisingly launched him into Internet fame.
"Fan Man," as the Internet has dubbed him, Keaton Dockery-Yanker, is currently taking all of his college classes virtually, which means all of his class encounters are happening over Zoom.
It all started when one student zoomed in on the class and realized Keaton's thumbnail was right above another classmate whose ceiling fan lined up perfectly with Keaton's neck. The classmate took to TikTok of course, and published a hilarious compilation of the entire Zoom meeting and its hilarious grid-view of the class. Her caption reads, "I hope the guy in my Zoom class watches this video."

It only took a couple of hours before Keaton saw the video.
"I was with my girlfriend and she said like three people had sent it to her like, 'Is that your boyfriend?'" he said to BuzzFeed. "And we died laughing." He followed up with a reaction TikTok and reaped the subsequential benefits of how it feels to earn your fifteen minutes of fame.
