Silly Zoom Backgrounds for Your Next Video Call

By: Tobin Carlberg | January 28, 2023

Video calls have become a mainstay for many schools, businesses, and even social gatherings with family and friends who live farther away.

While a day full of Zoom calls can be tiresome, it’s nice to mix it up with an interesting background to help lighten the mood. After all, if you can make someone laugh, that’s always a win. Here are a few silly backgrounds you can use to add some humor to your video calls.

Note: You can right-click on any of these pictures to download them straight to your computer. It’s that easy!

Damn bro, you got the whole squad laughing.

Even when you’re smiling through the pain, show everyone how you really feel about this meeting.

“What should we have for lunch, Justin? How about you, James? Does Thai food sound good? Oh wait, hold on, I have to join my Zoom call real quick.”

By placing yourself right in the middle of your screen, you can make it look like you’re in between your two best buds, Justin Bieber and James Corden, as they’re jammin’ out to a little carpool karaoke. Does it logically make sense that you’re on a Zoom call in a moving car? No. Does it matter? Also no.

All eyes on you.

Be the one he tells his girlfriend not to worry about. Even in a video call of 100+ people, you’ll always be the center of attention with this guy around.

Are you mocking me?

Yes, that’s right — now you can make fun of your friends (and your boss) on a video call without even saying a word.

Drake the type of guy to hide in your Zoom background and let you do the talking.

If you’re ever feeling like you don’t have anything to bring to the table, just remember that despite all his achievements, Drizzy decided to grant you the spotlight this time.

Be the father figure Spidey always needed.

With this picture, you can always have the Spidey-in-training look at you in admiration as you’re pushing through the next Zoom call. So when you’re feeling unconfident and no one seems to be listening, at least Miles Morales is.

Any Marvel fans out there?

Some of the best backgrounds are action shots, where it’s almost like you’re part of the scene. Now you can make it look as if Ant-Man, or Giant-Man in this case, is about to swipe you from the meeting.

You might get a few laughs, who knows? Let’s hope you have some Marvel fans in the chat.

Enjoy video calls with the whole family.

Don’t have a big family to brag about? That’s okay! There's always room for one more in the Simpsons household.

When work meetings get stressful, always remember you have your old pals Shaggy and Scooby to keep you company amidst all the work drama. Just grab some popcorn because it’s about to go down!

Now, I know what you're thinking — this Windows background needed a little bit more Mike. All my homies like Mike.
