To mark the expansion of Meta’s drab virtual reality platform, Horizon Worlds, to France and Spain, Mark Zuckerberg recently shared a selfie. The image, featuring the boyish CEO for a low-res model of the Eiffel Tower, quickly struck a chord and sparked jeers, jeers, and sighs from funny social media users. And honest, can you blame them??

If the image offended you—and I personally would think it’s reasonable given Meta’s influence on our virtual past and present—then you may find comfort in this: Mark Zuckerberg hears you. He sees you. And no, he says more or less, the metaverse will not look That crazy. At least not forever.

Mark Zuckerberg's Horizon Avatar, Looks Just Horrible

Mark Zuckerberg’s Horizon Worlds Avatar, Looks Just Horrible

“Major updates to Horizon and avatar images coming soon. I will share more on Connect,” the CEO said on Instagram on Friday, referring to Meta’s expectant conference for developers. “I also know that the photo I posted earlier this week was quite simple – it was taken very quickly to celebrate a launch,” the director added, showing signs of humanity. The misstep echoes something very recognizable; the act of posting a late night selfie, only to regret it in the morning.

The Meta boss further assured his followers that Horizon’s graphics “are capable of a lot more – even on headsets – and that Horizon is improving very quickly.” Indeed, for all of us, I really hope he’s right.
