It seems Justin Bieber is the latest celebrity to get on board with the app craze taking over smartphones: Pokemon Go!
Joining in on a massive search early Monday morning outside Central Park in NYC, Bieber alongside hundreds of other crazed fans flooded the streets in hopes of capturing a rare Pokemon.
Reddit user stalkertuesday saw The Biebs close to the Apple store on 59th and 5th Ave (phone out of course) shortly after a Gyarados spawned in the area.
Yes, this is real life now.
Hopping out of a car with six bodyguards at around 12:30 a.m. Bieber (for the first time in about a decade) went largely unnoticed as gamers were glued to their phone screens.
Thankfully, one gamer, Ron Phippen, looked up long enough to snap an image of the singer and posted it to Instagram
“(Bieber) pulled over to catch a Pokemon,” Phippen captioned the photo.
Now, Bieber isn’t the only celebrity caught up in the Pokemon Go fever, John Mayer apparently spent $100 to purchase in-game currency on the app.
While Nick Jonas recently tweeted a complaint from tour mate Demi Lovato about the amount of Pokemon in their area.
Chrissy Teigen had a close encounter with Steve Carell.
And leave it to Wiz Khalifa to say what we’re all thinking…
Who else has been swept up in the Pokémon Go phenomenon?
