Cat filter during press conference distracts from whatever he was saying

Political press conferences are usually kind of dry and boring. However in Pakistan, one took place that even little kids loved to watch over and over again, for a very 21st century reason: an ill-advised filter during a Facebook Live stream.

PTI, a news network in Pakistan, was broadcasting a live-streamed presser by Pakistani regional minister Shaukat Yousafzai. At one point, the person handling the stream accidentally (or perhaps, "accidentally"?) activated the cat filter on their phone. Suddenly, during what was supposed to be a serious news address, Yousafzai sprouted cat ears, rosy cheeks, and whiskers, suddenly making it became one of most awesome press conferences ever.
