Which is the most fascinating zoom call background you have seen in a work call?

I've seen a custom one that looked like the background was slowly melting.

The ones that look like a regular office and I almost believe that's my coworkers home office until I realize the lighting doesn't match

I love it when my team members put up memes as their background for some meetings. When their WLB is messed up, they put up the "ATM guy" as their background. When someone is being appreciated, they put up Munnabhai's "tum bohot mast kaam karta hai Maqsood bhai" 😂

I saw on insta, a guy had recorded himself bringing coffee and set that as his background

I like the one that makes it look like you're floating in space.

For those of you living alone, how are you keeping yourself entertained during social distancing? I’m hundreds of miles from my family and the loneliness is starting to get really hard. Zoom/FaceTime calls seem to make the feeling worse, not better. I just feel so isolated. I’ve gone for some outdoor walks with a friend who lives nearby, but otherwise I go weeks without in-person interactions. Any suggestions?
