An actor and Mark Zuckerberg look-alike skewed the virtual reality of the Facebook founder’s Metaverse while promoted the stunning waterfalls and wild horses of Iceland in a tourism video.

Urging people to visit “Icelandverse,” actor Jörundur Ragnarsson, with a short bowl haircut and awkward body movements and identified in the video as Zack Mossbergsson, chief visionary officer, says, “Today I want to talk about a revolutionary approach on how to connect our world without being super weird.”

“Some said it’s not possible. Some said it’s out of reach. To them we say, it’s already here. Seriously, it’s here,” he gestures to snowy wonderland. “What do we call this not-so-new chapter in human connectivity? The Icelandverse. Enhanced actual realty without silly looking headsets. In our open-world experience, everything is real and has been for millions of years.”
