New York City: It would seem that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has turned a deaf ear to a monument of him in the shape of a goat that cost $600,000 and was erected as part of a weird marketing ploy for a cryptocurrency.

Elon Musk’s likeness was cast in metal and measured 30 feet tall and 12,000 pounds. It was sent to Tesla’s headquarters in Austin on November 26 as part of a PR stunt organized by the creators of the memecoin Elon Goat Token (EGT).

The monument depicts Elon Musk’s head atop the body of a goat that is mounted atop a rocket. In addition, the monument depicts Musk with a dog collar adorned with a DOGE cryptocurrency.

According to the white paper published by EGT, the whole project was designed to be able to be driven on public roads and was secured to a semi-trailer that was fifty feet long for the purpose of transportation. Drawings and renderings of the conceptual design were completed in Los Angeles.

In the project description on their website, the creators of EGT, who call themselves as “Elon Superfans,” said that they were attempting to achieve “something no other Crypto project has dared to do” in order to acquire recognition and validity for their project with an acknowledgement from Musk.

Sadly for EGT, the $600,000 memorial has not received any public notice from Musk himself, at least not on Twitter. EGT had hoped that Musk would mention the monument.
