QUIZ: Which weird Zoom background matches your vibe?
Duterte sleeping in his kulambo
If you've been tweeting online protest hashtags and blocking the troll army non-stop under the quarantine, this Zoom background is perfect for you. You've been told "Puro ka reklamo." and "Eh di, ikaw na lang maging presidente." but that doesn't stop you from pressuring the Duterte administration to step the f*ck up. You are a force to be reckoned with and not afraid to make a noise. Wake 'em up!

Fun, fashionable and full of energy. You can even try going on a virtual date here. Malay mo magkajowa ka na.
Kim family’s bathroom from “Parasite”
If you’ve been struggling with your Wi-Fi connection and so done with all the toxic positivity posts from rich people, join Ki-woo and Ki-jing in the bathroom of their basement apartment. If you disappear from the meeting because of your shoddy connection or because you ran out of data, your boss would be less likely to reprimand you. Fingers crossed. You are cunning, creative and your company needs to cut you some slack.
