Justin Bieber may be a platinum-selling, world-touring pop star, but he’s still obsessed with Pokemon Go just like the rest of us.

While wrapping up the North American leg of the Purpose Tour in New York City, Bieber did what any millennial would do with his precious downtime: he played Pokemon Go around the city. And he was dedicated. For Justin, catching a Pokemon involved running into oncoming traffic right near Central Park.

Alfredo Flores, a photographer for Bieber on tour, caught the moment on camera and posted it on Instagram. Gotta catch ’em all, right?

Bieber rocked two sold-out nights at Madison Square Garden this week, and brought out special guests Travis Scott and Jaden Smith for the second show on Tuesday, July 19. Next up, Biebs heads to China and Japan in August and then Iceland, Germany, France and greater Europe into the fall. And we’re sure they’ll be more Gyarados, Charizards, and Squirtles to catch once he gets there.
