"A Conference Call in Real Life" Nails Why Conference Calls Are the Worst

Conference calls usually frustrate us to no end. Technical difficulties, people talking over each other, background noise—as if meetings weren't bad enough already!

But this conference call parody by comedy duo Tripp and Tyler made us laugh out loud by highlighting exactly how awkward conference calls really are. If you haven't seen it yet, stop reading now, and just click play already. Seriously. And if you have seen it, you should probably watch it again (I promise: It's just as good the second and third times).

Just beware—you might find yourself chuckling next time you're on a conference call. (But if you put the call on mute, nobody will ever know the difference, right?)
