Billionaire Elon Musk has left everybody extremely confused, once again, after sharing a string of bizarre Teletubbies memes on Twitter.

The Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder has already shown his willingness to get onboard with memes and internet culture. Back in February, after weeks of request from fans, he finally made an appearance on Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg's YouTube show 'Meme Review'.

He followed that up with a Call of Duty Zombies meme to commemorate the NASA Mars Rover finally going offline after 14 years. Yet, his jokes took a bizarre turn when he tweeted out a Harambe song from SoundCloud and left all of his followers bemused. Now, he’s done it again - this time, focusing on the tv show - the Teletubbies.

Musk appeared on Meme Review alongside Rick and Morty's Justin Roiland.

On August 4, Musk tweeted out a generic photo of the Teletubbies with the caption “Teletub,” with a bee emoji attached. Why he didn’t just type out the actual name was only the start of the confusion.

He followed that initial post up with a second image, this time of Queen Elizabeth II in different colored dressed on the Teletubbies background. The caption, this time around, made a little more sense with: “Queen,” and another bee attached.

Of course, some of his followers quickly set about trying to decipher some sort of code, while others decided that the best course of action would be to follow up with own memes.

Twitter user IAmStaka had their own Teletubbies-inspired image, placing different images of Musk on to the different characters.

Another, RadioAshgarde, embraced the bee portion of the post to ask a serious question about musk himself.

He posted: “Elon, should we [bee] worried about you?” with another emoji of the flying insect inside his comment.

Not all of his followers, however, had their own jokes and instead had instructions for Musk considering the time he made the bizarre post at.

“Jesus Christ Elon, its 4 in the morning, go to bed,” added user JayMalik384, pointing out that the Tesla CEO might benefit from a good night's sleep.

Regardless, nobody has been able to figure out why Musk made the post - or if there is significance behind it.

Yet, knowing his history with memes, it’s likely just something he finds hilarious and we’ll never get an answer to.
