How could you not? It was haunting.

It turns out that there is a very logical explanation for Zuckerberg making himself look like a clown while riding an electric surfboard in Hawaii.
Actually, that’s wrong. Logical is the wrong word. More like ridiculous.
During an Instagram Live discussion on Tuesday, Zuckerberg finally addressed what the hell was the deal with all that sunscreen.

“I really should have thought that one through more,” said Zuckerberg. “I noticed there was this paparazzi guy following us and, so I was like, ‘Oh I don’t want him to recognize me so you know what I’m gonna do? I’m just gonna put a ton of sunscreen on my face.’ And that backfired.”

“No one needs to be wearing that much sunscreen,” he said with a laugh while adding that there is a “delta” between how cool you think you look doing extreme sports and how silly you actually look when someone takes a photo of you, reports CNET.
Wait… is riding an electric surfboard considered an extreme sport?

“I’m glad people can laugh about it,” Zuckerberg added. “I laugh about it and I think it’s pretty funny.”
That’s because it is pretty funny.

Actually, I stand corrected. This technically isn’t the first time Zuck addressed his sunscreen overload. He also talked about it last July, just not publicly.
In leaked audio obtained by The Verge from a company wide Q&A, Zuckerberg said, “I’m not a person who’s under the illusion that I look particularly cool at any point with what I’m doing. But when you’re efoiling down the coast of Kauai, and it’s beautiful, and it feels like it’s awesome … you come back online and you see that’s the photo, that’s what you look like … it’s like, oof, okay. Alright. That’s maybe quite a bit more sunscreen than I thought I was wearing.”
Zuckerberg then added, “But look, gotta stay safe. I’m not going to apologize for wearing too much sunscreen. I think sunscreen is good and I stand behind that.”

So… whose camouflage skills are better? Zuckerbot? Drax?
Or Eric Cartman?
