Tesla community celebrates #ElonMuskDay instead of 4/20

Tesla fans and owners from around the world thank Elon Musk for inspiring and starting the EV Revolution!


To recognize Elon Musk’s significant additions towards the betterment of humanity, Tesla owners and enthusiasts shared their thoughts on the 4/20 day and rehashed it as #ElonMuskDay in contrast to the cannabis culture.

Many followers and Tesla owners gave a shout out to Elon Musk on Twitter, and paid their special tributes — one of them was our favorite Ian Pavelko who recently completed a Cross-Canada Road Trip in his Tesla Model 3 Performance (nicknamed ‘MAGNETO’), before being introduced to the Tesla Mission of sustainable transport and energy, he was a pure petrolhead and loved to compete in rallies with his Audis, he tweeted:

Another artist who is recovering from marijuana addiction thanked Elon Musk for being his inspiration towards hard work and dedication to goals, she even sketched Elon Musk’s achievements in an illustration specially created for this occasion.

SpaceX enthusiasts like the Real Life Starman and Everyday Astronaut also shared their thoughts on how Elon Musk was an inspiration and a mentor to them on their journey of learning about the space and space technology.

Tesla influencer Sean Mitchell even wrote a poem for #ElonMuskDay:

Here’s to the dreamers, futurists, believers in the impossible,

ones who question the status quo, disruptors of the entrenched,

the ones who understand our actions have a ripple effect on future generations;

Here’s to clean air, quiet streets,

less traffic, unobstructed views of nature;

Here’s to instant torque lovers, OTA updates, reusable rockets, and more efficient traffic;

Most importantly, here’s to those who believe that one is better than zero, that it is better to light one candle than curse the darkness.

Elon Musk faced the 420 paradox when in 2018 he announced that Tesla would go private at $420 per share and the funding is secured to make it happen, the TSLA stock suddenly started climbing but the secret deal he had with some investors broke down and rest was history when mainstream media and Tesla short-sellers made it a point against him, till this day 420 is attached to his persona.

We all know that later on the Tesla share went way higher than $420 but there is no cure for the irrationality of this type I guess, even with the dragging COVID-19 situation the TSLA share is $693.91 as of this writing.

Today, the oil industry is in crisis, not Elon Musk or Tesla as crude prices have reached the lowest in history, yes $0 — our friends at CleanTechnica published a nice one on that, Elon responded “Crazy Times” — indeed!

The latest Third Row Tesla podcast invited several influential Tesla YouTubers, investors, owners, and enthusiasts to talk about the Elon Musk Day, here’s the interesting video.

Lastly, I also thank Elon Musk for igniting the passion for Electric Vehicles and a cleaner future in me — he has actually guided me on how you can bundle your work, passion, and mission into one — Thank You Elon Musk.
