Die-hard Elon Musk fans build weird statue with goat body riding rocket
Fans of billionaire Elon Musk have created an enormous aluminum statue that has the body of a goat referring to the popular abbreviation G.O.A.T, which means the biggest of all time.
The bizarre statue is 30 feet long with a huge Musk head on a goat’s body that is on top of an aluminum rocket. With a 24k gold-plated thunder sign on the goat’s neck, the statue is worth $6,00,000.
Canadian metal sculptors Kevin and Michelle Stone produced the gigantic work, commissioned by the cryptocurrency company Elon GOAT Token ($EGT).
They release updates to their official Elon Goat Token Twitter account. “Elon GOAT Token ($EGT) built a Massive Monument for Elon because he’s Badass and we’re heading to Austin to give it to him November 26,” the social media bio read.
“We are setting up an event at CIRCUIT OF THE AMERICAS, Austin,” the company said on Twitter.
“We are going to have some fun for a few hours and then all cars and trucks will hit the freeway behind the monument, destined for Tesla’s Giga Factory.”
The event is called “goats giving” and it has got plenty of exciting Musk fans.
“Goats giving is going to be insane!” a social media user said. “Best project ever,” chimed in another.
A few months ago, die-hard fans published a video in response to a post by Musk that showed the craftsmen working on the head of the statue. “We have done lots of work already,” the engineer is heard saying in the video.
Reports have shown that the CEO of Tesla sold approximately $4 billion of the automobile company’s shares after the purchase of the microblogging platform, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The CEO took the company through massive changes after he bought it. He laid off 90 percent of Indian staff and some employees reported working 80 hours per week. Others said they had to sleep at the office to make sure they were on time.
On Thursday, Musk brought up the possibility of the bankruptcy of the social media platform, the end of a chaotic day that included a warning from a US privacy regulator and the leader’s exit into trust and security.
