Although in the past, those working in various sectors were eager to spot holidays from the calendar, now the lockdown phase has confined every soul with a purpose which hasn’t been smooth to manage amidst the peeking stress. In fact, rather than juggling between professional and domestic responsibilities, we are constantly being tested of our technical knowledge as “work from home” mode has got activated through video conferences with office teams. But is it just the employees bearing the brunt of the hour or the bosses too? Well, here goes the answer.
The ogling potato on screen
The political director at People for the American Way, Lizet Ocampo proved the statement that mistakes happen to every human being regardless of being experts. The company, however, is a radical advocacy concern building democracy by the encouragement of Latinx voters to nominate and aiding dynamic candidates to win ballots.
A Reporter Appeared Without Pants During An Interview With National TV
On Monday, Ocampo appeared in a potato filter while participating in a daily virtual happy hour with community leaders that was hosted by Equis as part of her initiative. She revealed that her effort to entertain other partakers in the session was rooted in her instinct of downloading some funny face filters from the app and later on, she couldn’t but remember her own setup. That led to her surprising look in the group meeting whose colleagues saw a potato glaring at them on screen!
An unintended joyous drive
While explaining to BuzzFeed News, she admitted: “I was so confused as to why I was a potato.” But afterwards, she wasn’t aware of how to turn the filter off who told, “I just kind of gave up and stayed as a potato for the rest of the call,” contributing a warm moment to her colleagues amazingly.
Its high time to tater out
It led to her colleague Rachele immortalizing the bit, who shared a snapshot of the display on her Twitter handle. The tweet turnout out with 215k retweets at present.

With replies overflowing every now and then to the post, Ocampo owned the episode like an outright monarch and peeped saying, “I yam potato boss. You should see me in a crown, right @billieeilish? I yam glad this is making folks laugh at this time. Please stay planted at home and safe! Potate out. #HASHtag #PotatoBoss”.
