Professional Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has got the attention of Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk, after the popular streamer purchased a Tesla vehicle for a hilarious reason.

Back in October 2018, Tfue sent out a Tweet asking Elon Musk if he could help him “get better internet”, to which the mogul simply replied “Yes”.

Surprised that he was even given a response, the Fortnite pro pledged to buy a Tesla, simply because Musk replied to him.

Fans presumed that Tfue was only joking, as months went by with no news of a newly purchased Tesla.

However, on January 14, Tfue proved that he was a man of his word, posing next to his brand new Tesla Model X, the car manufacturer’s flagship SUV model.

Elon Musk took notice too, despite Tfue not being on his following list, the Fortnite player’s Tweet quickly got his attention.

Tfue wasn’t done there however, as he had a follow-up request – this time much more ambitious than helping him get better internet.

He asked Musk if he had any spare “unusable first stage rockets” just lying around, that Tenney might be able to buy for his warehouse, presumably for entertainment purposes.

Elon Musk hasn’t responded publicly to Tfue’s request, and it also appears that he is still having internet issues too – but at least he has a Tesla now.

It’s a beautiful thing when the internet comes together to bring about iconic memes. Lately, Kim Kardashian is the inspiration behind a hilarious trend after she tweeted about her lavish birthday party. 

On October 27, Kim revealed to the world how she was celebrating her 40th birthday in style through a thread on Twitter, filled with images from the gathering.

She wrote, “I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment.”

And she also acknowledged her own privilege, adding “I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is”

But one particular tweet in the thread found a whole new life of its own after parodies exploded on the platform. The tweet read, “After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.”

Twitter found it hilarious, providing their own versions of images alongside the text from the viral tweet – from different impressions of “private islands” to ominous depictions of the “inner circle”.  Scroll down to see some of the best parodies so far.

After 2 weeks of multiple health screens…

Drag Race’s Lemon inspired the ultimate nostalgia by pasting the tweet alongside an image from Club Penguin of the crowded iceberg from the game.

Journalist Sophie Thompson went so far as to use a screengrab from Midsommar, implying that a seemingly innocent getaway could turn into a horror movie – it is spooky season after all.

Attorney and author Rabia O’Chaudry continued the theme of implied violence with a screengrab from Game of Thrones, taking the narrative to a whole other level.

Comedian Katy Brand had the genius idea of using an image from the Wicker Man.

Internet personality Blessed Madonna compared Kim Kardashian’s get-together to Fyre Festival with this incredible image of one of the meals given to attendees at the infamous event.

Other tweets referred to popular games

Author Desus Nice shared the Contraband map from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

ESPN Esports pasted the tweet alongside an image of the Hyrule Temple from Super Smash Bros.

We had to include a shameless plug: we added Kings Canyon, the original map in Apex legends.

Twitter is nowhere near finished with these amazing parodies, and will surely keep going until all the options are exhausted. Watch this space.
