Smiling at Kermit The Frog's statement, Sundar Pichai rectified his technical mistake and greeted the muppet.

Sundar Pichai may be the CEO of Google but even he is human and just like all of us, he too can forget to unmute his mic during a virtual video call. On Wednesday, Pichai shared a video on Twitter as he indulged in a fun conversation with Kermit the frog. He spoke to the famous muppet character who has made several appearances on American television shows for children like Sesame Street. The two minutes and 19 second-video showed Pichai and Kermit in a conversation. The video began with Kermit greeting Sundar as he said, “Hi there, Sundar.” Responding to Kermit’s cheerful greeting, Sundar is seen saying something, however, there was no audio from his end. That is when Kermit points out and says, “Sundar, I think you are on mute.” The muppet does not chew his words as he adds with honesty, “Wow, can’t believe I am talking to the CEO of Google and he is on mute.”

Smiling at Kermit’s statement, Sundar rectifies his technical mistake and greets the muppet, saying, “Sorry Kermit, I was on mute. I’ve done it a few times this year, just like everyone else.” The IIT Kharagpur graduateadded, “I’m a huge fan of yours and the muppets.” Reciprocating Sundar’s feelings, Kermit said that he is a huge fan of Google which he has used to search for more than eight thousand species of frogs on the planet.
