Scottish MP Goes Viral After His Cat Photobombs Zoom Meeting

Scottish MP Goes Viral After His Cat Photobombs Zoom Meeting

bored panda - 4 months ago

If there’s one thing to love about Zoom meetings, it’s the hilarious interruptions that happen every once in a while. This week, a Scottish member of parliament gained internet fame after his cat Rojo photobombed a virtual meeting.

John Nicolson, a parliament member for Ochil & South Perthshire, was speaking about the advantages of putting subtitles on children’s television when he was suddenly interrupted by his cat’s tail waving across the screen.

More info: Twitter

I apologize for my cats tail, the lawmaker told his colleagues as Rojo casually walked in front of the camera. The others in the meeting started to laugh while John Nicolson was trying hard to keep his composure after his cat stole the spotlight.

The laughter continued as Rojo seemingly refused to step out of the view of the camera. Rojo, put your tail down, please, John then told his ginger four-legged friend, much to the amusement of his colleagues.

The video almost instantly went viral

Eventually, Rojo let the humans continue their virtual meeting of the Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport Committee and moved on, while the video of it almost instantly went viral.

And the Scottish MP was thrilled about Rojo’s newfound fame

Following the now-viral meeting, John Nicolson couldn’t help but boast about Rojo’s newfound international fame and tweeted: “For all Rojo’s new fans (thousands across the world it seems) – you’ve seen the tail. Here’s the face.”
