This past summer, almost one year ago now, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg set the internet afire by being captured, off the coast of Maui with friend Kai Lenny, riding an electric foil, face completely covered in an absurd amount of sunblock.
Or maybe Kai Lenny was there a different time when Mark Zuckerberg had appropriate amounts of sunblock on but whatever.
People had to know, what was the meaning? The purpose? Was he performing some bizarre white-face production?
Hiding from the paparazzi?
Initially, Zuckerberg praised sunblock’s unique ability to block the sun, keep skin cancer-free, etc. but that facade broke, two days ago, when he finally copped to the truth.
On an Instagram Live stream, Zuckerberg told Instagram’s head Adam Moserri that, he was “eFoiling around” with pro surfer surfer Kai Lenny, when he noticed “this paparazzi guy” following them. He said he didn’t want to be recognized, so he “put on a ton of sunscreen.”
“That backfired,” he added.
Oh yeah, Kai Lenny was there.
And hiding from the paparazzi?
That simply doesn’t stand to reason and the fact that Zuckerberg is still talking about the moment, trying to defend it, rings suspicious.
I’m back to some bizarre white-face production.
What do you think?
