A dynamic update of Musk’s social media once again triggered a carnival in the Internet world. The topic of “Musk’s Seven-Step Poem in Chinese” quickly appeared on Weibo’s hot search in just 4 hours. At 8:12 on November 2, Musk, the CEO of Tesla, published an ancient poem titled “Humankind”: boil beans and burn douqi, and beans weep in the cauldron. It was born from the same root, so why is it too anxious to fry each other.
The background of the birth of this poem is rumored to be that the older brother Cao Pi, who had just ascended to the throne during the Wei and Jin Dynasties, ordered his younger brother Cao Zhi to compose a poem within seven steps from the hall, otherwise he would have his head fall to the ground. In later generations, it is often used to describe brothers’ cannibalism, homicide, etc.
Musk, who is carrying ancient poems, what are the plans this time?
You know, Musk, who pursued Twitter to govern his business, was once known as the “master of bringing goods.”
In February of this year, Musk launched a push to support Dogecoin, saying, “We don’t need to be billionaires to have Dogecoin. Dogecoin is the people’s virtual currency. I haven’t drank too much, and I’m not depressed. There is only Dogecoin in my heart.”
Even after the recent announcement of the establishment of a Polytechnic University in Texas, I did not forget to be the Dogecoin platform and tweeted that the opened university would support Dogecoin payment.
Musk’s love for Twitter even made him once fired Tesla’s US public relations department and regarded Twitter as the place for company announcements. And it is the general public in the secondary market that gives Musk the confidence in the company’s governance.
Up to now, Musk has close to 61 million Twitter followers, making him the number one influencer on the platform. After Tesla and Space X’s legendary entrepreneurial experience blessed, and after reaching the top of the world’s richest man, Musk was increasingly deified and idolized.
As Bloomberg wrote, Musk, as an innovation communicator, has become an idol of retail investors who bet on technology stocks. “His behavior of not excessively pursuing traditional business goals, including profitability, cash flow, etc., has further made him sought after by retail investors.”
To make the above pursuit a further step, Tesla’s total market value officially exceeded one trillion U.S. dollars last Monday (October 25, local time), becoming a successorApple,Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Facebook, the sixth trillion club member. Musk’s personal wealth has also risen, surpassing 300 billion US dollars, and he is firmly on the throne of the world’s richest man.
Watching Musk’s every move has become the basic operation of caring and curious about the daily life of the world’s richest man, and more people hope to interpret the new wealth code from the words of the world’s richest man.
Around this seven-step poem in Chinese, a large wave of “Musk language analysts” appeared on the Internet.
The first is the theme Humankind (human), which is a simulation strategy video game released by Sega. It was just logged on to Microsoft in August this year.WindowsPlatform issuance.
Therefore, some people analyzed that this may be just a feeling that Musk expressed after playing the game.
After all, Musk’s love for the second element is no longer a secret.
On October 14, Musk said on Twitter: “Can’t wait to be in Genshin Impact (Can’t wait to be in Genshin Impact).”
Under this tweet with goods “Original God”, some netizens asked Musk to recommend several animes to watch. Musk quickly responded including “Death Note”, “Neon Genesis Evangelion”, “Ghost in the Shell” “”, “Spirited Away”, “Princess Mononoke”, “Fullmetal Alchemist”, “Your Name” and a lot of works, can be regarded as the hidden identity of the old two-dimensional.
In January, Musk also tweeted an emoji package promoting the Japanese game “Idol Master” character Yumizu Sachiko, which helped the game development company Bandai’s share price rise the next day, and was praised by many netizens as a true “stock god”.
Some netizens also pointed out that Musk may have used the past to satirize the present and secretly mocked the 6 billion donation incident.
According to Bloomberg News, the Director of the United Nations World Food Program Bisley tweeted in early October to call on Musk and other wealthy people in the world to donate 2% of their fortunes, or US$6 billion, to help 42 million people worldwide not starve to death. This view was reiterated on more occasions later.
Beasley said that $6 billion is just Musk’s “single-day wealth growth figure”, and urged Musk to act as soon as possible, saying that “this invitation will expire soon, after all, human lives are at stake.”
Musk also responded to this via Twitter, saying, “If the World Food Program can accurately describe on this Twitter post how the US$6 billion will solve the world hunger problem, I will immediately sell Tesla shares to donate. But it must It is an open and transparent accounting method that allows the public to see exactly how money is spent.”
In addition to forced donations, wealthy Americans such as Musk are still facing the possible new taxation policy of the US government.
The Wall Street Journal reported that at the end of October, Ron Wyden, chairman of the US Senate Finance Committee, disclosed a new plan to tax the super-rich. Once implemented, Musk may need to pay about 50 billion US dollars in taxes, and Bezos, the world’s second richest person, will also pay about 44 billion US dollars.
Of course, netizens have not forgotten the competitive relationship between Musk and Bezos, thinking that this poem may more or less reflect the competitive situation of the two sides.
In recent developments, Amazon, owned by Bezos, announced on November 1 that it will launch its first “Project Kuiper” Internet satellite in the fourth quarter of 2022, in a head-on confrontation with Musk’s Starlink network.
The IPO plan of Rivian, an electric car company invested by Amazon, is getting closer and closer. Its valuation is close to $80 billion, and the competition target is also directed at Musk’s Tesla.
In the face of Bezos’s pressing pressing, Musk has repeatedly tweeted taunts. He not only described Bezos as “sue Space X and became Bezos’s full-time job after retirement”, he also criticized Bezos directly. “Follow”, after securing the throne of the world’s richest man, he also gave Bezos a “silver medal” emoticon with a big “2” statue.
In addition to a serious analysis, netizens also played various stalks.
Coincidentally, Yang Junyong, the actor who played Cao Pi the day before, has just passed away. Some netizens said that Musk was a kind of memorial ceremony for Yang Junyong.
Some people even played with homophonic stalks and adapted this seven-step poem into “Boil doge to burn doge, doge cries in the cauldron; Bitcoin is born from the same root, so why not subtract too quickly” to imply doge and shit Bid farewell to cannibalism and hope for peaceful coexistence.
For foreign netizens who don’t know Chinese at all, when faced with an ancient Chinese poem 1500 years ago, the headache is how to translate it in proper English.
Some people directly call it “interesting alien code.” Some people thoughtfully put the content of Google translation, but people who were attracted by the English word bean, understood it as a strange recipe.
Netizens who are still familiar with the Chinese world are more playful. Wherever there are hot searches, Justin Sun’s theorem will take effect again. This time, he kept up with the trend and posted the lyrics of a recently popular folk song “Mohe Dance Hall” in the comment area.
Some people began to introduce the Douyin Divine Comedy into the comment area, and Internet celebrity Divine Comedies such as Jay Chou’s “Give Me Time for a Song” and “You Who Love 105°C” appeared one by one.
Encouraged by the world’s richest man to bring goods in Chinese, some people also played a more difficult tongue twister and presented an article written in the 1930s by the famous Chinese linguist and the “father of modern linguistics” Zhao Yuanren. Homophone—”Shishishishishishishishishishishishishishishishishishishishi”, the full text of the 94 characters is pronounced shi in Mandarin.
There are also netizens who are not too troubled to watch the excitement, and have launched a reward for the world’s richest man.
So far, the number has exceeded 1,300, and even Weibo CEOs have joined this wave of rewards.
Of course, behind Musk’s speech in Chinese, it can actually be seen that he attaches great importance to China.
Whether it is Tesla’s stock price soaring or Musk’s ascent of the world’s richest man, the support of the Chinese market is inseparable behind it.
Before the Shanghai Super Factory was completed and put into production in 2019, Tesla was on the verge of bankruptcy because of “capacity hell”. With the help of the Shanghai Gigafactory, Tesla not only gradually solved the delivery crisis, but also won China, the world’s second largest new energy vehicle market after the United States.
Data show that China’s new energy vehicle sales in the first nine months of this year was 2.157 million, a year-on-year increase of 1.9 times, with a penetration rate of 11.6%. Among them, Tesla’s cumulative sales in China in the first nine months have exceeded 300,000. Only China’s sales have exceeded 200,000, and its export models have exceeded 100,000.
According to the financial report, in the third quarter of 2021, Tesla’s revenue was 13.757 billion U.S. dollars, and the U.S. and Chinese markets contributed 6.414 billion U.S. dollars and 3.113 billion U.S. dollars respectively. Among the 241,300 vehicles delivered by Tesla globally, the Shanghai plant delivered a total of 133,000 vehicles, accounting for 55.3%.
Moreover, the financial report disclosed that Tesla’s revenue in China in the first three quarters was US$9.015 billion, which has accounted for 25% of Tesla’s global revenue.
In realizing Musk’s goal of 20 million sales in 2030, China will be an indispensable and important force in terms of auto production and supply capacity and auto sales market.
In order to refill the Chinese market, Tesla announced on October 25 that both the Shanghai R&D and Innovation Center and the Shanghai Super Factory Data Center have been completed and will be put into use in the near future.
This means that Tesla has truly formed a closed-loop industry in China. In an interview with Beijing Business Daily, Yan Jinghui, a member of the Expert Committee of the China Automobile Dealers Association, said that after Tesla has landed in China on the production side, it will also set up its first R&D center in China. This is not only to see the prospects of China’s new energy vehicles, but also to go further. reduce costs. The localized procurement and staffing of R&D can enable auto companies to explore the cost of electrification.
However, it should be noted that while accelerating the transition to electrification, major auto companies are also increasing investment in the Chinese market. In addition to Tesla, traditional car companies such as Hyundai and Mercedes-Benz are also setting up R&D centers in China, setting up R&D centers in China one after another.
Tesla, which is temporarily ahead, is facing increasingly fierce competition.
