Tesla hires the ‘absolute unit’ meme guy

Tesla has reportedly hired Adam Koszary, the man responsible for the “absolute unit” meme, as its new social media manager.

Koszary, who used to work as the program manager for the Museum of English Rural Life, is known for tweeting a photo of a large ram from the museum’s account in April 2018. The caption: “Look at this absolute unit.”

A lot of people did look at that absolute unit, and thus a genuinely good meme was born.

On Wednesday, Tesla’s stocks sunk by a further six percent, leaving it to close on $192.73 (£152). That figure represents the lowest Tesla has gone since December 6, 2016.

Scott Galloway, an author, a marketing professor at New York University and occasional MarketWatch contributor thinks Apple AAPL, -1.57%  could buy Tesla.

Rumors of Apple buying Tesla have percolated for years, and Roth Capital Partners analyst Craig Irwin told CNBC earlier this week that the tech giant made a serious bid in 2013, for $230 a share.

Apple has reportedly had self-driving-car aspirations for years, though those plans have changed their focus dramatically. It laid off nearly 200 workers from its autonomous-car unit earlier this year, according to Reuters.
