An extremely funny incident that happened on the other side of the border yesterday, left people on social media in splits. Such incidents are not unusual for Pakistan as the country often keeps embarrassing itself and each time it pushes the bar higher.
The country made itself an object of ridicule when during the live streaming of the press conference of the provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. While the press conference was being broadcast live on the Facebook page of the government, a cat filter on the video got accidentally turned on. Journalist Naila Inayat shared the images of the press conference on Twitter.

The press conference was being organised by Pakistani politician Shaukat Yousafzai who was talking about the decisions made in the provincial cabinet in Peshawar. The cat filter made the faces of the people look like cats which tickled people’s funny bone and they started cracking jokes on it.
Some gave the ‘cutest politician’ award to Shaukat Yousafzai after the cat filter was turned on.
