Tesla’s founder and CEO, Elon Musk has promised on Thursday by tweeting that he will release “Tesla short shorts”, which he did. But the thing which amused was another tweet by the 49- year-old entrepreneur that he had bought a pair of shorts himself. In reply to his tweet, one of the tweeter users dared him to wear the same shorts to a shareholders meeting. Replying to this he said “that would be next level” and didn’t take it otherwise.
“Tesla will make fabulous short shorts in radiant red satin with gold trim,” “Tesla will make fabulous short shorts in radiant red satin with gold trim”, “Will send some to the Shortseller Enrichment Commission to comfort them through these difficult times.”
Mr Musk tweeted on Thursday – mocking short-sellers who borrow and then sell stock, hoping for a decline in price so they can buy it back at a cheaper rate and make a profit.
He kept his promise and put up shorts on Tesla’s website Sunday. The “Short Shorts” on the Tesla shop website.
The shorts have “S3XY” on the back, which is a reference to Tesla’s Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y vehicles.
Elon Musk has announced the release of red satin shorts available at $69.420 (5000 RS) at the tesla store by tweeting… “Limited edition short shorts now available at”. The Price of the shorts was listed at Tesla’s website.
According to Tesla, the shorts will provide “exceptional comfort from the closing bell.”
Musk has spoken against the short-sellers, who bet the price of Tesla stocks will drop, for long.
In 2018, he had sent a box of shorts of hedge fund owner and Tesla short-seller David Einhorn. Developing on the idea, he brought the red satin shorts for mass sale in 2020.
At July 6, when the shorts were sold he tweeted that he has bought a pair of red satin short shorts for himself. He wrote, “I bought a pair of XL”.
Everyone was amused by this tweet and a tweeter user gave him a funny dare to wear the same shorts at shareholder meeting.
Tweeting, “Double- dare you to wear them at shareholder meeting”.
Despite interruptions from the coronavirus pandemic — including stay-at-home orders which Musk referred to as “fascist” — Tesla last week delivered 90,650 cars to customers down 5% from a year ago, but far less than the drops of 30% or more reported by other automakers. Tesla’s second-quarter sales were also up a bit from the 88,400 cars it delivered in the first quarter.
