Ohio Senator uses a zoom virtual background of his home office while driving…on a meeting about distracted driving

Did he fool you?

If you have been unlucky enough to take part in a zoom meeting you know that someone on the call is always experimenting with the backgrounds, which can be distracting and super annoying. This Ohio senator takes that to a new level when he uses the green screen feature to superimpose his office as his background while he is clearly driving around, the seat belt is a dead giveaway. What makes this story better is that he is on a meeting about a bill regarding…DISTRACTED DRIVING.

The Senator was then asked during the meeting what he was doing and he said “I wasn’t distracted. I was paying attention to the driving and listening to it, I had two meetings that were back to back that were in separate locations. And I’ve actually been on other calls, numerous calls, while driving.”
