A politician had her live TV interview hilariously interrupted when her son rushed into the room brandishing a phallic-shaped carrot.
Carmel Sepuloni, New Zealand's minister for social development, shared the Zoom clip to Twitter.
She was having an interview with Radio Samoa on Monday morning (August 30) when her son walked into the room to show her what he had found in the groceries.
"That moment when you're doing a live interview via Zoom and your son walks into the room shouting and holding a deformed carrot shaped like a male body part," the politician wrote on Twitter.
Sepuloni is seen pausing her interview temporarily as her teenage son steps in and waves the oddly-shaped vegetable in front of the camera.
She tries to tell him that she is doing an interview and puts down the carrot, but her son resists and shows it to the camera again.
The anchor can be heard chuckling while watching the scene unfold.
"Yes we were almost wrestling over a carrot on camera, and yes, I'm laughing about it now but wasn't at the time!" Sepuloni added.
While New Zealand remains in a level 4 lockdown – restricting all types of transport and travel – Sepuloni sent a message to all work-from-home parents for juggling all the impossible tasks.

She said: "A big ups to all our parents working from home and parenting at the same time – I see you!
"Note to self: I will never buy the odd shaped carrot pack again."
Sepuloni is not the only victim of "Zoom-bombing" recently. Some have suffered even worse consequences when other household members walked into the background naked.
A mortifying video showed what happened when a young lad's mum walked into the background completely naked while he was on a video call with his teacher and classmates.
