A Friday press conference with Shaukat Yousafzai from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party [PTI] became a massive online hit when, by accident, the cat-filter was left activated and the politician appeared to have cat ears.

The mistake was noticed and the video removed from Facebook, but not before users purred over the mistake. Even Wikipedia users took to his page to change his name to ShauCAT Ali YousaMEOW as a prank.

The mistake was marked due to human error, BBC reported.

Pakistani Political commentator Ahsan Hamid Durrani said it “looks kinda cute.”
