During an important online conference call with her employees, Lizet Ocampo did not think that what she unintentionally did would make her viral on the internet. Unintentionally, she pressed something and turned on a filter, transforming her head into a potato. This filter is from Snapchat filters and it’s just hilarious how the entire situation turned out.
She couldn’t find a way to turn the filter off, so during the entire conference call, she was speaking to her staff as a potato. This moment was shared by one of the employees posting a picture of it on Twitter.

Rach, the employee, stated that her boss turned herself in a potato during Microsoft team meetings and couldn’t figure out how to turn the filter off. She added that the boss was stuck with the ‘potato head’ filter until the end of the conference. The post that the employee made went viral quickly.
In her luck, Rach’s boss has a great sense of humor so she did not get offended by the post her employee made.
Additionally, she added that she won’t get fired for sharing the photo for the rest of the world to see.
Lizet Ocampo, the boss, has accepted the joke and loved the name that the internet gave her: The Potato Boss. She made a funny retweet on Rach’s post, 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! For more needed laughs, follow my favorite comedian @cristela9. Potate out.”
