During a recent court hearing, a Texas attorney, Rod Ponton, got himself into a comical mess when he couldn't figure out how to turn off a cat filter on his Zoom video.

A video posted by Texas' 394th Judicial District Court portrayed Ponton, 69, as being invisible behind a cat filter as he spoke to the camera. He moved his eyes and mouth while speaking.

"Can you hear me judge?" Ponton asked. To which Judge Ferguson replied, "I can hear you. I think it's a filter."

As Ponton continues to struggle with the app, Cat flits its eyes across the screen in panic. The lawyer said he had no idea how to remove the cat filter, and that his assistant had tried to remove it, as well.

Ponton confirmed his presence to the judge, then explained he's not a cat. He said he's willing to go ahead regardless. The 42-second clip has already been viewed nearly ten million times.
