Gif: Mark Zuckerberg (Instagram/Gizmodo)
This is what I saw, and you must see it as well. Although it may seem like a fake video, I can assure you that this is the real deal.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg chose to celebrate Fourth of July while others were busy roasting hot dogs and watching fireworks. He posted a video of him surfing with an American flag, Take Me Home, Country Roads, by John Denver playing in the background. Why? Because AMERICA.
This video is quite a cursed one. It is just the latest in a series of odd PR moments by ol Zuck. He shared videos last month of him firing arrows at bowling pins and throwing spears at wooden targets. The slow-motion footage allows you to fully appreciate his coolness.
The billionaire seems to have been much more cautious with sunscreen application, at least for this time. He is not like the famous photo of him applying a ridiculous amount of sunscreen while he was on an efoiling adventure. Later, he claimed that he was trying fool the paparazzi by covering him in sunscreen because surely he would turn a paler color of white, which would make him unrecognizable.

Zuckerberg posted a caption to his Instagram video wishing everyone a happy July Fourth.
Social media responses can be summarized in one word: Why?
One Twitter user wrote, "I wish they could bring John Denver back into life so he can sue Mark Zuckerberg."
One person told Mark Zuckerberg that he should act completely normal for July Fourth, wrote another. This was also my first thought. How can a person look more robotic in video than he does on photos?
After seeing this, I hope that you can all still enjoy Fourth of July weekend. This video will live in my head rent-free for a lot longer than it should.
