As it turns out, the YouTube video that went viral and led some to believe Elon Musk had purchased Google was a scam. This is all the information we have at this time. Elon Musk finally closed his deal to buy Twitter outright on October 27, 2022, after months of negotiation.
Since then, he’s been in the headlines on a regular basis for making adjustments like deactivating Andrew Tate’s account after five years and banning the account that was monitoring his plane. His name has resurfaced in the media after a bogus YouTube video spread the rumor that Elon had purchased Google.
Has Elon Musk Acquired Google?
Not at all did Elon Musk acquire Google. A video uploaded to YouTube on January 8, 2023, has led many of his admirers to believe otherwise. Elon Musk Zone, the YouTube channel hosting the hoax, uploaded a video with the title “Elon Musk: ‘I officially bought Google'” and narrated it in the voice of Musk himself.
After only one day online, it had racked up over 458,000 views. Supporters of the tech tycoon were eager to voice their thoughts on the matter in the video’s comments section. “Of course, he can take Google. Most people may not agree. The man had genius abilities,” one user said. Another replied: “This is awesome thank you Elon you are the greatest.”
The creator of the channel admits in the description that it is a “fan channel” intended for “fictive enjoyment,” yet the channel has clearly succeeded in fooling its audience. Indeed, this is not the first scam to involve Musk in recent weeks or months. Fans thought he had temporarily deactivated his Twitter account in November of last year.
What does Elon Musk own?
The range of Musk’s investments now includes a wide variety of emerging technology. He is most known for starting Tesla, an electric car firm that produces very intelligent automobiles. Elon also has a stake in Starlink, a company that uses low-orbit satellites to give internet access to parts of the country with spotty connectivity.
Four astronauts were sent to the ISS by SpaceX in 2022. In September of 2021, Musk flew his first passengers on a hired jet. Musk is also a co-founder of the San Francisco company Neuralink, the whose stated goal is to “connect the human brain to computers.” Musk established the tunneling startup The Boring Company in Houston, Texas.
Some people were fooled into thinking Elon Musk had bought Google because of a viral video, but it turned out to be a hoax. As of right now, this is all we know. After months of discussion, on October 27, 2022, Elon Musk finalized his agreement to purchase Twitter altogether.
