More people are working from home than ever before as nations attempt to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and they are realising the hurdles that come with it. A US television journalist has posted a video of how her attempt to record at home was disrupted by her shirtless father walking into the frame.
Jessica Lang, a reporter for Suncoast News Network, was recording a report on the situation in Florida in her kitchen when her father walked into the frame, while still pulling his t-shirt down.
“What did you do, mom?” Lang can be heard saying to her mother, who was given the task of recording the report. Lang then turned around to see what made her mother’s expression change and saw her father standing behind her. She then raises her fists and says, “Dad! Holy crap!”

The most #relatable thing I’ve seen. Feeling this right now. Mom can’t hack it as a cameraman and Dad always walks in when I’m filming. They try, they really do. Too bad I don’t get an A-for-effort. https://t.co/EeFqs4RS8w
