The coronavirus pandemic has seen a long list of Zoom fails take place in the last two years but this may perhaps be the worst.
Kevon Burns took the bizarre decision to attend his virtual court hearing relating to his suspended driving licence – while driving.
A video on Reddit shows how Mr Burns was questioned by Judge Erane Washington as to why he was “driving, in court, while suspended”.
Having claimed he was just "parking a friends car", to make it worse, Mr Burns retorted with “are you having a bad day?”
Judge Washington said: “I wasn’t having a bad day until you started talking while driving at the same time that you’re suspended.”
The incident took place at the 14-B District Court in Missouri, where Judge Washington presides.
The 36 second video clip has blown up on Reddit’s Facepalm thread, with 395 comments and 22,000 views.
One user wrote : “Imagine being stupid enough to 1) commit a crime after you‘ve been punished for something similar already 2) film yourself doing it 3) being in a live call with a judge who know‘s that you‘re not allowed to drive.”
Another told a very personal, and comical story about his experiences of the American driving licence system.
He said: “I live in South Carolina and didn't get my license until I was well into adulthood.
“I failed pretty much everything on the driving portion (there wasn't even a written portion lol) when it came to her asking me questions as we drove. I kept messing up a lot and apologizing. The lady was clearly quite aggravated with me by the time we got back to the DMV.
“She took a deep breath and let out a long sigh and asked me how old I was to which I replied "25 mam" and she just gave me the disappointed look and said 'well, I guess you passed then'."
And, to add a cherry on the cake, WheelNSnipeNCelly pointed out that Mr Burns was may have landed himself in more hot water with his actions.
They wrote: “Don't forget by filming himself committing that crime, he's committing another crime (distracted driving.)”
