And yet a photo—which is apparently from 2016—of Jay-Z riding a jet ski while wearing a helmet and a nonplussed look seems to have resonated with the indoor kids. It was resurrected over the July 4 holiday as a symbol of how a lot of us are feeling right now.

It was pointed out that this isn’t the first awkward sporting moment for Jay-Z.

It was added to other recent rapper memes.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé rode the way only she could, though the photos TMZ posted in 2016 do show her wearing the red helmet as well.
Beyoncé did post photos of their holiday a couple days ago, though it’s not clear if more jet skiing took place.
