It’s unlikely that anyone would feel particularly attacked if I state that Elon Musk isn’t the great genius of the 21st century he has tried to make us believe for years. He’s more like a spoiled child with a lot of money that no one dares to deny anything. And as evidence, here’s another detail from the biography ‘Elon Musk’ written by Walter Isaacson, which delves into his personality, and where every detail is absolute gold. Really, pure 24-karat gold.
Travel to 2077
In this case, the story begins when his ex-wife (and mother of three of his eleven children), Grimes, went to Projekt Red to record the dialogue lines for her character, Lizzy Wizzy, a bioengineered pop star in ‘Cyberpunk 2077‘. After all, Grimes is a singer, and she earned the role through her work since 2010. But apparently, Musk interrupted her recording session and began to beg to make a cameo appearance in the video game. You know, like functional adults do.
The problem isn’t the begging; it’s what he had in his hand: a gun from two centuries ago. It’s known that Musk keeps a replica by his bedside in his daily life, but it’s unclear if it was exactly this one. How many two-century-old weapons can the world’s richest man own? The CEO of Twitter, to “calm” the studio members, stated, “I am armed, but I am not dangerous,” a clarification that, personally, would make me even more scared.
Apparently, Musk had a fixation with ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ because it “looked like the future” and reminded him of his Neuralink project, which has so far killed 15 monkeys. He liked it so much that he even used it as a design example for his Tesla Cybertruck (which ultimately didn’t go on sale). So, when you put it on paper, a man over 40 entered a recording studio armed, demanding a cameo while interrupting his partner’s work. All perfectly normal.
By the way, in the end, he got what he wanted: apparently, a character you find in a bathroom at the beginning of the game is Elon Musk. Mission accomplished, genius.
