Mark Zuckerberg is showing the world he can hit a target — and not just a sales target.

The Facebook CEO shared two bizarre videos on his social platform Sunday with him throwing spears and shooting a bow and arrow. 

He initially teased the clips on Friday, posting a message reading: “A trail I wanted to hike is out of hiking permits, but has plenty of hunting permits available. That’s basically saying: look, you can’t walk here unless you also bring a bow and arrow. So I guess we’re doing this.”

Two days later, he shared footage of himself aiming arrows at bowling pins and posted a message referencing the ace archer from the Marvel superhero movies: “If I were an Avenger, pretty sure I’d be Hawkeye.”

The other video is posted with the message, “I have a very particular set of skills … ” — a nod to Liam Neeson’s line in the 2008 film “Taken.”

The video shows the tech boss in slow motion hurling spears at a bull’s eye with Audioslave playing on the soundtrack. Zuckerberg wore headphones for sound protection.

Zuckerberg doesn’t identify where the videos were taken, but Business Insider hypothesized that the CEO may have been in Hawaii, where he owns several properties. The lush vegetation that serves as a background suggests this is a good guess. 

Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, added 600 acres of land on Kauai’s North Shore to their portfolio. 

They purchased the land in three parcels for $53 million from the Waioli Corp., a nonprofit that owns several historic sites on the island, the corporation said in a statement sent to SFGATE. The deal closed March 19.
