(March 20, 2018 / JNS) Founder of SpaceX, Tesla and Neuralink billionaire Elon Musk uploaded a video to Instagram and Twitter this week of himself lighting cocktails on fire in a Jerusalem bar.
The posts evidently went up after he had already departed the country; they garnered nearly 250,000 “Likes” in just two hours.
“Learning how to pour flaming absinthe over a tower of glasses in Gatsby, a Jerusalem speakeasy. Everything’s better with fire . . . ,” Musk wrote on Instagram.
On Monday night, he also posted a selfie from the ancient Judean desert fortress of Masada with the caption. “Paid respects to Masada earlier today. Live free or die.”
Musk’s Tesla electric-car company has no official office in Israel, but had a partnership with Israeli auto-tech company Mobileye. The relationship soured in 2016 following a series of accidents involving self-driving cars equipped with Mobileye.
Also in 2016, Musk’s SpaceX launched Israel’s Amos-6 satellite into outer space.
Musk is the 53rd-richest person in the world as of February, with a net worth of $20.8 billion
