The funny thing about the post Simu is that he accompanies his words with a stock image in which he himself appears. The actor revealed that years ago he dedicated himself to doing these types of photo shoots (images with licenses that can be purchased by other companies for commercial purposes) and that is why he has appeared in countless advertisements, a type of content that could appear in your school English book. In the photo placed in the tweet we see Simu laughing along with two other people while pointing to a computer screen.
