Following Anheuser Busch’s latest PR campaign with Dylan Mulvaney, Twitter CEO and meme fanatic Elon Musk has shown interest in buying the firm.
Elon Musk tweeted that he thought it would be a good idea to diversify his holdings by buying a beer firm like Anheuser Busch. He has the financial resources to make a significant purchase with an estimated net worth of over $200 billion.
While it seems unlikely that Musk will enter the beer market, he has previously experimented with solar power, tunneling and even brain implants.
Anheuser Busch has seen declining sales and a shift in customer taste toward craft beer, but many industry analysts doubt he can turn the company around.
One of Anheuser Busch’s most popular beers, Bud Light, has been called into doubt by experts who wonder whether Musk has ever tried it.
Additionally, some have questioned whether it is ethically acceptable for a tech millionaire to run a large beer firm.
Some doubt that Musk is the right person to run an iconic American brand like Budweiser because he has received criticism for his labor practices and lack of concern for the safety of workers.
Despite the backlash, Musk is still determined to dominate the beer market. He tweeted that he would make an intergalactic beer called “Musk’s Malty Marvel” if Anheuser Busch did not allow him to buy the firm.
Whether or not Musk actually achieves his beer-related goals is still to be known, but for the time being, we may see this erratic tech billionaire cause waves in the corporate world we’ve come to expect. Never even thought of it.
