Minutes of audio from the movie Galaxy Quest delayed a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing.

According to news agency United Press International, it played while members were speaking.

Officials held the subcommittee on energy and water meeting via Zoom and livestreamed online.

Viewers noted the audio from 1999 sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest and later, some disco music from The Village People.

Officials called for a recess and then realized the audio issue during the livestream.

Appropriations committee spokesman Evan Hollander explained that a problem with the studio feed resulted the audio.

“HRS apparently decided to add a movie soundtrack over the discussion of energy and water projects,” Hollander tweeted.

Meanwhile, a lawyer from Texas accidentally appeared as a cute cat during a virtual court hearing via Zoom.

According to various news reports online, he clarified immediately that he is “not a cat.”

Rod Ponton said he had difficulties turning off a filter that turned his face into a kitten.

“I’m here live. I’m not a cat,” the lawyer said in a a video of the 394th Judicial District Court hearing.

Judge Roy Ferguson, who presides over the district, then tweeted a clip from the video and provided an advice.
