Elon Musk Flattered, but Slightly Creeped out by Shrines Built in his Honor in Tech Geeks’ Basements


There is no denying that Elon Musk, owner of Tesla Motors, businessman, and technology media darling has built a substantial following in recent years. Just how dedicated his fans can be, however, might be becoming an issue. Musk, responding to a collection of photographs of shrines bearing his likeness and business logos, was quoted as saying “I really appreciate the sentiment, I do. I’m just a little weirded out by the locks of hair and incense. And are those lipstick marks on my photo?”

None of the owners of the basement Musk shrines could be reached for comment. Photo Credit: Steve Jurvetson.
