Councillor appears naked on zoom call after thinking he turned off the camera
One councilor, while participating in a Zoom meeting, took his laptop into the bathroom, apparently thinking his camera was off, before stripping fully nude and hopping in the shower.
The Social Democratic (PSD) councilor from Romania shocked his fellow colleagues when he appeared on the screen in the buff when the chairman of the meeting called for attendance.
Alberto-Iosif Caraiani then looked down at the camera, revealing his shirtless body as well as his wet hair.
Caravan then calmly wiped the water from his face, while the chairperson tried to not smirk.
He eventually became aware that the camera was on, before doing some agitated clicks at the screen with no success while members of the meeting broke out in laughter.
Some people in the meeting shouted at Caraian to turn the camera off, but his panic seemingly overwhelmed him and he said: “But I can’t hang up, I can’t hang up, I apologize profusely. I have a bad cold, but I don’t know how to hang up.”
The councilor eventually managed to exit the call before returning later on in more appropriate work attire.
He also addressed the gaffe on his personal Facebook page, writing: “Technology still plays tricks. Unfortunately, haste has spoken! I apologize for the unfortunate incident… Apologies once again to everyone!”
