Mark Zuckerberg’s July 4th weekend celebrations were different to most.
The Facebook founder and CEO took to social media to share a bizarre video of himself riding a hydrofoil surfboard while waving the U.S. flag.
He posted the clip to the tune of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads”.
The post had everybody talking online.
Some mocked the billionaire for attempting to appear “normal,” in the clip, while others pointed out how meme-worthy the whole thing was.

Mark Zuckerberg posted a video of himself on Instagram wakeboarding while holding an American flag and set to the music of the late John Denver singing “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”
I saw it, so now you have to see it too. I’m sorry. I did not make the rules.

Facebook’s PR team spent years trying to craft Zuckerberg’s image, which is funny because the strategy now seems to be “let the dude let his freak flag fly” https://t.co/XwFKJuUeZS
