Using a filter for videos generally helps with looking good and keeping our followers entertained while watching our videos.

Most of the time, the use of a filter is intentional. But what happens when it’s unintentional? And used during a serious live stream, such as for a politician’s press conference for example? Well, the video goes viral.

Recently, Provincial Information Minister Yousuf Shaukat Zai, from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in north-west Pakistan and member of the ruling party PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) had his social media team live stream a press conference he was speaking at through Facebook Live.

The press conference was about the recent decisions made by the provincial Assembly. However, netizens had a hard time focusing on the topic at hand.

Unbeknownst to Yousuf Shaukat and his social media team, the videographer had accidentally activated a filter during the live recording. And it wasn’t just any filter, it was a cat ears and whiskers filter…

As the camera changed focus between Yousuf Shaukat and his colleague, the filter moved around too and eventually stuck to his colleagues face, who then had a similar cat-like appearance.

The live-stream video immediately went viral on social media, which erupted with cat-memes and cat-ch phrases. Unfortunately, the video was later taken down from the political party’s official page.

After the adorably embarrassing incident, the party’s social media team posted a response addressing the mishap

The whole thing got us thinking about what our own politicians might look like if they adopted this practice.

Do it, bro! Do it!
So cute!

At least it would ensure their videos reached the masses, kan?
