Filmmaker Creates Zoom Background Where He Brings Himself a Cup of Tea

During the coronavirus pandemic, many people have been getting used to conducting their daily lives over video calls. One man was particularly creative with his setup, and created a Zoom background where he appears to bring himself a cup of tea.

Graham Woods from Birmingham, England, who runs a YouTube channel dedicated to cinema, got the idea from one of his favorite movies.

“I’m a filmmaker, and Back to the Future 2 is one of my favorites. I was inspired by the scenes of actors interacting with themselves and wanted to spice up yet another dull Zoom meeting,” Woods told Storyful.
