You know the Texas lawyer who went viral after a Zoom filter left him looking like a cat during a virtual court hearing? At first he was embarrassed…but now he’s thinking it’s time to cash in on his moment in the spotlight.


Rod Ponton told TMZ ,“By the time I realized that the thing had gone viral and it was already everywhere in the world, I got over it,” he stated, saying that “you can’t put toothpaste back in the tube.”  He’s planning a line of merchandise as well as paid gigs advising others on avoiding similar mishaps. He may be a little late to the game saying, “They’re already selling T-shirts, mugs, and everything else, so we’re gonna try and catch up with that.”
