Let's be honest, parents and the elderly around you do really boomer things. Front camera facing the ceiling during video calls, watching videos that can be heard from a mile, forwarding "good morning" messages on WhatsApp without skipping a day, explaining a caller at length how they dialled a wrong number - the Baby Boomer generation is keeping themselves busy doing these things among others when they aren't criticizing the younger generation.
Calling this out in a light-hearted tweet was Bollywood actor Swara Bhasker, who took to Twitter on Tuesday and wrote, "What video chatting with parents looks like :) :) :)"
The actress also tagged her father and attached a screenshot of her video call with her parents - except her parents were nowhere to be seen. Swara could almost be seen sighing in the empty video frame.
It was hella relatable.

But then Swara's father made a surprise entry, one that proved that he was anything but a boomer.
"What video chatting with the daughter looks like :):):)," Swara's father Uday Bhaskar wrote in response. In the screenshot attached from a video call with his daughter, a cat could be seen climbing the couch with Swara turned sideways.
His lit comeback was welcomed by Twitterati.
