As more countries go into lockdown due to the coronavirus, people are substituting video calls for face-to-face human interaction in an attempt to maintain both social distancing and their sanity.

Dealing with the problems of these dystopian times, comedians Eva Victor and Alyssa Limperis have released a short clip demonstrating the irritating struggles of chatting on a video call, complete with cut-off sentences and misheard words.
