Mark Zuckerberg Shares Secrets Behind His Viral Surfing Video

Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, has unveiled the secret behind his viral video celebrating July 4th.

He posted a video on Instagram captioned “happy birthday, America” set to Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA.”

In the amusing clip, Zuckerberg is seen surfing in a tuxedo and wearing shades while holding a can of beer in one hand and an American flag in the other.

Yes, you read that right.

Many Instagram users questioned whether the video was genuine or made using AI.

However, Zuckerberg himself provided some clarity in the comments, explaining how he managed to pull it off.

One social media user commented, “not AI-generated,” to which Zuckerberg responded: “Pure 8-month recovery surfing with a dry start right here.”

He was referring to his recovery from an ACL injury, one of the most common but serious knee injuries. It involves a tear or sprain of the anterior cruciate ligament—a critical band of tissue that connects the thigh bone to the shinbone.

Zuckerberg sustained the injury in November 2023 while training for an MMA fight during a sparring session, which took months to heal.

Yet, it appears he has bounced back, as the comments on the post were overwhelmingly positive and supportive.

While most people celebrate America’s Independence Day with barbecue, fireworks, or gathering with friends and family, Zuckerberg opted for a more unconventional approach.
