It had been almost a year since Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky shared a photo on his Instagram page. So the post with which he chose to ultimately return had to be worth the wait.

This week, Chesky shared a post with U2 frontman Bono, featuring two pictures: The first showing them locking hands in a mock arm wrestle, captioned “Can’t really explain what’s happening here.”


In the next picture, the two have swapped sunglasses; Bono is wearing Chesky’s sporty sunnies, while Chesky tries out Bono’s trademark rose-coloured glasses. Chesky was modest, his caption saying, “I got to wear the rose colour glasses but he still looked cooler.”

While Chesky is clearly a fan, it seems the feeling is mutual. Back in 2014, when Airbnb announced it would double its workforce in Ireland, the U2 frontman said Airbnb are a “force to be reckoned with”.
