Elon Musk, the SpaceX CEO and billionaire, has been known to attract controversy on Twitter. Recently, all eyes were on the billionaire's tweets as he followed longtime rival Jeff Bezos' journey to space.
Musk tweeted to Bezos's space company, Blue Origin, saying, "Best of luck tomorrow!" before their launch on Tuesday. Later the next afternoon, Musk also sent a simple "Congrats!" to the Blue Origin account. This was after they released the video of their New Shepard rocket ship landing in the West Texas desert.
However, Bezos' successful spaceship launch was not the only topic of the day, but was also the inspiration of a X-rated adult toy company's new product. A tweet posted by SciGuySpace, included the PR pitch on behalf of adult entertainment company CamSoda. It claimed that they will begin selling rocket-themed adult toys which was initially inspired by the specific shape of Bezos' rocket ship.
The pitch stated, "The world couldn't help but notice the phallic shaped rocket [Bezos] was in," and also included a joke that the billionaire's rocket "penetrated the o-zone".
To confirm that the pitch was not a joke, Huffpost Personal editor Noah Michelson stated that he received an email with the same subject heading. "I think I'm going to bed because obviously today needs to be over right now," he joked.
Musk did, however, get his laugh, responding to the post with only one word. It just said, "Nice".
Though he might be a man of few words, Musk is seasoned at sly but subtle responses that pack a punch.
One user replied to Musk's tweet. They said, "It's amazing how, no matter how advanced humans become, there's always that sophomoric level of adolescent humour about all things sexual. So complex yet so simple."
