I’ve seen it, so now you have to see it too. I know he looks like one of those video deepfake, but I swear to you: It is the real deal.
While other people were out roasting hot dogs or watching the fireworks on Sunday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg chose to celebrate July Fourth by surfing the internet with a video of himself surfing holding an American flag like “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by the late John Denver plays in the background. Why? Because AMERICA.
This absolutely damn video is the latest in a series of bizarre PR moments by ol ’Zuck, which last month he shared videos of him shooting arrows at the bowling alleys throwing spears at wooden targets (shown in slow motion, so you can fully appreciate how cool he is).
At least this time, the billionaire seems to have been much more conservative with his sunscreen application. Unlike that infamous photo which went viral last year as he slattered himself in a ruthless amount of sunscreen while on an e-foiling adventure. He then said he was trying to do it deceive the paparazzi shooting it with all that SPF, because it certainly transforms a whiter shade of white making it completely unrecognizable (it turns out, if it was wrong).
“Hello on July 4th!” Zuckerberg wrote in the video caption on Instagram.
The answer on social media can be summed up in one word: Why?
“I wish they could bring John Denver back to life just so they can sue Mark Zuckerberg for that,” he wrote. a Twitter user.
“Someone told Mark Zuckerberg to act normally by July 4.” wrote another. It was my first thought as well: How a person manages to watch as well more like a robot in video than in photos?
I hope you all can still enjoy the Fourth of July weekend after seeing this. As for me, this video will live unattended in my head for a way longer than it should.
