30 of the Funniest ‘Oops!’ Moments on Zoom Calls

‘Oh my God he stabbed me!’
30 of the Funniest ‘Oops!’ Moments on Zoom Calls

No one could’ve predicted how quickly Zoom would become a part of our lives, but it appears that the video-conferencing app is here to stay. Thankfully, along with the rise in this particular technology comes an influx of comedic gold by way of unmuted conversations and an array of colorful background characters. Case in point: One Redditor recalled the time they watched someone’s fully nude nana slowly make her way across the room. That’s a scenario you don’t quickly forget, and you gotta wonder why nana wasn’t covered up

To that end, other Redditors have recalled the blooper-esque situations they’ve witnessed while on a Zoom call, and if you’ve ever been tempted to use the bathroom when you think you’re muted, maybe just hold it.

CruisingLeReddit • 3y We had a guy in his car, unmutes his mic during a presentation to answer a question, and forgot to mute.

 4y Not even 2 minutes into first online live stream class, moaning noises start coming over the stream. Thinking its a joke, professor stops and asks whoever it is to stop. Noises keep coming, and suddenly they get really loud. Next thing we know, someones mom starts screaming and yelling at someone in the background, and sounds of crying are heard. Turns out someones brother was watching *ahem* adult films and accidentally hooked up to his speaker instead of his headphones, although still not sure how one can actually make that mistake without knowing it. Anyway, professor continued on

KanataCitizen 3y During a one-on-one, my coworker was screen sharing on zoom so we could both see and discuss the changes to a document in real-time. After an hour, we decided to take a ten minute break. I went to the washroom and came back to my computer seeing he still had his screen share on and navigated to a NSFW website. I waited until he returned from his 'break', and I didn't mention anything. Hey, we all make mistakes, and in these trying times, why take away any pleasure or make an interaction uncomfortable? ... 1.6k

Using a walker so she's
