On Sunday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg joined other public figures in wishing his fellow Americans happy independence day. The billionaire’s special wish, however, left audiences laughing and wondering what Zuckerberg was high on.
Mark Zuckerberg posted a video on his official Instagram handle, showing himself cruising along the water on an electronic surf board, while holding the American flag.
The bizarre scene was quickly met with astonished reactions as social media users collectively cringed.

Observers of all political stripes mocked the Big Tech billionaire. “Here is Mark Zuckerberg proving he’s not just richer than you, he’s more patriotic,” left-wing writer Matthew Yglesias said.
Alternative media journalist Luke Rudkowski quipped, “Extremist alert”.
While Zuckerberg’s video might have backfired as a PR stunt, it at least gave Americans a rare topic on which they could agree.
