The 37-year-old’s look has also caught the attention of most out there. Instead of his usual basic shirt and hoodie, Zuckerberg this time around surprised everyone with his stylish avatar. It is not confirmed, but it seems he is wearing Meta RayBan glasses, one of his own innovations. This is not the first time that Zuckerberg has taken out time to wish on a special day. In 2021, he shared a similar video where he was hydro-foiling while holding an American flag in his hand.
