GTA coming to Tesla? Elon Musk teases fans

Eccentric billionaire and tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has dropped multiple hints about Grand Theft Auto being playable in a Tesla motor vehicle, in a typically bizarre set of tweets.

Elon Musk is widely known as one of Twitter’s most eccentric, and widely followed, characters. The Tesla CEO and entrepreneur can be found regularly tweeting bizarre memes and jokes, sometimes even relating to his own company.

Back in May, for example, the tech mogul wiped $14 billion off his own company’s value with a single tweet. On June 26, he turned his attention to Rockstar Games and their incredibly popular Grand Theft Auto series.

Musk is also known to be a fan of video games.

“Only a matter of time before someone steals a Tesla while playing GTA on a Tesla,” he tweeted, much to the confusion of a lot of his followers. However, he then pedaled significant interest with a single-worded follow up: “Literally”.

While there has been no official confirmation from Musk or Tesla, a host of his followers took this comment as a strong suggestion that Tesla’s will soon allow passengers to play some well-known video games while they are being used – and not just the arcade-like ones that are built into some cars now.

Musk’s company is already working to pioneer new motor vehicle technology, and this would be the latest in a long line of futuristic features.

However, the billionaire wasn’t done there, and began to meme Rockstar Games over the recently announced Grand Theft Auto V. The meme, also shared on June 26, shows Rockstar games ‘rinsing’ GTA V.

The GTA V Remaster was considered by some fans as underwhelming, as many were expecting a reveal for GTA 6. Musk appears to fall into the category, suggesting the 7-year-old game has run its course.

Whether the memes inhibit any future Tesla partnership with Rockstar remains to be seen but, with Elon Musk involved, we wouldn’t rule anything out.

TikTok star Nikita Crump has managed to pull off the incredible feat of living in her car, a 2012 Honda Civic, for over one year. Now, she has explained how she was able to pull it off in a new YouTube video.

Crump’s journey began in a video first uploaded on November 3, 2019 where she explained how she officially told her landlord she would be moving out of her home and into her car.

According to Crump, this wasn’t some impromptu decision and she had been spending a few months actively thinking about it before taking the plunge.

Nikita has been living in her car for over a year.

Despite having a nice house with affordable rent and good roommates, she felt moving into her car was something she “had to do.”

Since then, she has successfully spent a whole year living in her car and marked the anniversary of her first night by explaining how she is able to stay cool or warm at night.

In the backseat of her car, the YouTuber keeps a pillow and too fuzzy blankets which she uses to cover herself up.

Along with her sweatpants and sweatshirt, she is able to stay warm even in the winter months. However, occasionally she has to put a jacket on if it’s ever especially cold outside.

“In Northern California, a lot of the warmer days are still cool nights, so I’m fortunate that most nights throughout the year are totally bearable, but there’s totally been the occasion where it is hot, I am sweating and I wear as minimal clothing as I can,” she explained.

Luckily, she also has a rechargeable fan which can help her get through the night if need be despite only staying charged for one day.

In addition to just staying cool, the TikTok sensation also revealed she showers at the gym and keeps plenty of personal hygiene products inside her bag including shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant to name a few.

Now, Crump is hitting the road and embarking on a two-month-long trip around the United States where she’ll be documenting her experiences.

The entertainer’s decision to live in her car has paid dividends, as she currently has over one million followers on TikTok.
