Tesla CEO Elon Musk has shared in a bizarre wish of buying Coca-Cola and he has one big plan for the company if he achieves this goal.
The tech billionaire wrote on Twitter: “Next I’m buying Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in.”
Look, it’s definitely one of the more insane business pitches we’ve ever heard, and we wonder how it would go down with the board.
Of course, this stirred up a frenzy on Twitter and many unsurprisingly welcomed Musk’s vision for the carbonated drink.
One user wrote: “I don’t know about you but… I’m liking the new ownership already @elonmusk.”
Another commented: “He is an inspiration to entrepreneurs, a visionary and innovative person determined to achieve his goals despite the obstacles in his way to positively impact the world. #ElonMusk #ElonMuskBuyTwitter #MoreThanJustAGame.”
Others questioned the billionaire’s insanity, with one user writing: “This is Kanye West level crazy. #ElonIsUnwell.”
A different user commented: “Why would you do that? That was stupid and dump what you just said. Grow up!”
Funnily enough, when Coca-Cola launched back in the 1800s, it was filled with cocaine and caffeine. The cocaine, which was derived from the coca leaf, was removed in the early 1900s.
The billionaire’s declaration to buy Coca-Cola comes after Twitter agreed to his $44 billion takeover bid.
In a statement announcing his mammoth offer, Musk said he wants to encourage ‘free speech’ on the social media site because he’s concerned the company had imposed too many restrictions on content.
He wrote: “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated.
