zoom backgrounds

Iconic Canadian brands have started creating Zoom backgrounds

With everyone working from home, Zoom and other video conferencing platforms have taken off as a way to virtually connect. And with a feature that lets you choose your own background, there's room for a little play, too.

Zoom's function that lets you create a background while you communicate via video has added a bit of colour to the mix while everyone continues to self-isolate in an effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Some Canadian brands have jumped on the trend and created ones you can use to show off to your friends, family and colleagues.

No Name came through with its signature minimalism indicative of its products.

While the Toronto Maple Leafs are giving you the chance to play in the big leagues with images from the inside of Scotiabank Arena and the player's locker room.

Others have created their own backgrounds from stock photos, such as this one of toilet paper which has recently gained new status — going from something we use to wipe our butts to the MVP of the pandemic.

Arguably one of the most popular backgrounds is the empty wall in the conference room from The Office where employees of Dunder Mifflin Paper would often go to talk to the documentary crew.

Star Wars, Star Trek, Tiger King and the distracted boyfriend meme have all been utilized as well.

During this time of social distancing and virus worries, little things sure do go a long way.
