Elon Musk Claims His Son’s Name ‘Sounds Like a Password’ During Cheeky Interview
Last week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk visited Gigafactory Berlin in Grunheide, Germany. Upon arrival, a spontaneous press conference developed at what appears to be the parking lot of the construction site, which quickly turned into a bit of a media frenzy. Suddenly, a reporter asked him about his son X Æ A-12’s whereabouts. Musk’s response was less than scripted: “Oh, my kid. It sounds like a password.”
The video interview was filmed and shared on Tobias Lindh’s YouTube channel, who on the video description admits never expected to get that close to Musk-much less have questions answered. The video begins with basic questions about his visit to Germany, the factory, the cars, but around the 1:25-mark, an off-camera journalist catches Musk off guard with a question that has nothing to do with technological innovations or Tesla cars.
“How is X Æ A-12?” the reporter asks. A puzzled Musk gets the reporter to repeat the question before admitting that the cryptic name sounds like a maximum-strength password.
Eventually, Musk goes on to say that X Æ A-12 is doing great and that he may bring him to the Giga Berlin when he returns in a few months.
Other outlets have spun this interview into making it seem like Musk forgot his son’s name, which he didn’t. This simply is a case of Musk being somewhat overwhelmed with various reporters and fans blurting out questions at him in random order. Musk might be a lot of things, but even I doubt he’d actually forget his son’s name.
In the end, however, I agree that it does sound like a password or some crazy military protocol.
