Tulsa unveils gigantic Elon Musk statue to help lure Tesla to town – Fox News

Fox News

Tulsa has transformed its landmark 75-foot-tall Golden Driller statue into a likeness of the Tesla CEO in a bid to convince him to open a new factory in the Oklahoma metropolis.

The statue, which is the fifth-tallest in the continental U.S. and stands outside the Tulsa Expo Center, was built in the 1960s as a tribute to the state’s petroleum industry. Its electrifying makeover included replacing its “Tulsa” belt buckle with one that says “Tesla,” adding the automaker’s logo to its chest and painting its face to resemble Musk’s.
