I watched the entire episode and felt that Elon did a great job. I noticed four BEV commercials during the broadcast including one for the Lucid Air.

Secretly the episode was a promo for competition BEVs using Elon as the draw. I think Elon out-marketed the other companies though.

Absolutely. it was the perfect medium to showcase new BEV’s from different manufacturers. Once the senate and house pass BEV tax incentives and possible rebates it’s game on for the BEV market.

Absolutely. If I was the BEV competition I would definitely want to showcase my product with a commercial during the show. Once the senate and house pass BEV tax incentives and possible rebates it’s game on for the BEV market.
Game on sputter for most of them due to chip and battery shortages though.

“Sputter”: what is the BEV version of sputter?

I couldn't agree more. I thought Elon was awesome! I truly enjoyed watching his performances.

I think Elon did this just because he considered it a tough challenge. I admire him for doing it but I would have preferred if he was spending this time with CT team. He should not get a life before CT roll out. He understands many complex problems better than most but he does not get this one simple thing; Everything is about me.

I've found that most high-achieving people have mentors and coaches. I wonder which one of them was like, "Yeah, that sounds like a great challenge to take on. Go for it!"

I can scarcely imagine the type of conversation that goes on in such coaching sessions.

I thought he did great. He is human and fallible. Dreaming big and making it happen. Yes I am a Muskovite.
Let's be real, he was bad and that show was pretty bad. He's not an actor, and for someone on the spectrum, it is heartening to see him pushing his boundaries. It was also great to see him out there and clearly having fun. Since that is what the show is for, a big win. The Dogecoin tank being blamed on his "racket" line is typical and too bad...
