This Town Erected A Hugh Statue Of Elon Musk, Which Doesn't Look Like Him At All

Can you guess what they call the statue? The answer is Golden Elon (Yes, seriously). We don't think Elon Musk would be thrilled about this

Recently, Elon Musk has a 23-meter statue of him erected at Tulsa, a city in Oklahoma, the US. It was revealed last Wednesday by G.T. Bynum, the city’s major, and Tesla Owners Club of Oklahoma.

It was not a whole new statue though. The city has modified its iconic Golden Driller statue first introduced in 1966 to be more like Tesla’s CEO. And the motive behind this? Well the city wants to woo Musk to build its Gigafactory there.

Can you guess what they call the statue? The answer is Golden Elon (Yes, seriously). Tulsa’s major said on Twitter that the city revered entrepreneurs, it did not stifle them.

Golden Elon Musk is now the US’s sixth tallest statue.

This act followed some rumor citing sources familiar with the matter, saying that Tesla is considering between Austin, Texas and Tulsa, Oklahoma to build its second assembly plant in the US. And with it comes the promise of 10,000 new jobs.

Last week, Bynum announced in a statement that Tulsa and Tesla were forced in the same spirit. He explained both were founded by pioneers with big dreams, they both tried new energy, and the two invested in humans, which is what mattered the most.

Golden Elon, which used to be a billboard for charities and local businesses, won’t look like that forever. However, Tulsa has other efforts that could last longer.

Bynum said the local police force would think about the idea of switching to Tesla’s Cybertrucks, an effort Elon Musk himself would appreciate more, we think.
