Elon Musk becomes a perfume salesman so he can buy Twitter

MISE À DAY

Elon Musk says he's sold thousands of bottles of a perfume dubbed “Burnt hair,” the latest whimsical claim from the Tesla boss and world's richest man. 

“Thank you for buying my perfume, so I can buy Twitter,” he tweeted on Wednesday.

The businessman is supposed to reach an agreement to buy the social network for 44 billion dollars by the end of the month, failing which a trial must take place in November on this eventful operation.

He had made an acquisition offer accepted by Twitter at the end of April, before seeking to extract himself from it unilaterally at the beginning of July. The platform filed a complaint and Elon Musk finally assured last week that the transaction was really going to take place.

“10,000 bottles of Burnt Hair sold” – “I can't wait to see the articles in the media on the million dollars of Burnt Hair sold”, he had already tweeted Tuesday evening with a hilarious smiley.

“20,000!!”, he launched Wednesday evening.

His profile shows now features the label “fragrance seller” to its approximately 108 million subscribers, and a link directs users to the product's sales page on the site of one of its startups, The Boring Company.

The billionaire, also boss of SpaceX (rockets) and Neuralink (brain implants), is a regular joker made viral by his many fans. He has already marketed absurd products in the past in reference to his various escapades and humorous traits.

“With a name like mine, it was inevitable that I would find myself in the fragrance sector – -why didn't I do it before?!” he exclaimed again on his favorite platform.
