Elon Musk pulled up to his meeting with Emmanuel Macron unshaven after a night of clubbing.
He was seen partying in Mexico hours before meeting Macron, and said that he slept “in the car.”
Macron met with Musk to discuss Tesla’s possible investments in France.
Elon Musk pulled up to his meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron unshaven and trying to shake off the effects of a night of partying.
The internet tycoon was dancing on the dance floor at an very expensive hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on Monday before his meeting with Macron at the presidential palace in Paris.
A tweet shows the 51-year-old busting out some dance moves in a crowded nightclub.
While he’d swapped out his jeans and T-shirt combo for a crisp suit, Musk appeared to still be unshaven in his meeting with Macron.
Topnewsplanet said, he also jokingly told Macron that he had to “sleep in the car” prior to their meeting.
This is not the first time that Musk has admitted to sleeping in odd locations. He previously said that he slept on Tesla factory floors to show that he was hard at work and not “drinking Mai Tais on a tropical island.”
He told earlier this year that he sometimes sleeps on a sofa in the library of Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters.
The French leader met with Musk to urge him to make investments in France. Musk told the reporters that Tesla will do “important investments” in France, but he wasn’t sure on what will that happen.
“No announcement today, but I am very impressed with President Macron and the French government and how welcoming they are to industry,” he told reporters.
Macron later met with about 2oo business leaders in Versailles to discuss investments in France.
The leader has recently been criticized for raising the national pension age from 62 to 64, despite pushback.
But Musk has previously voiced support for his plans, saying in a tweet on January 20 that “Macron is doing the difficult, but right thing.”
“The retirement age of 62 was set when lifespans were much shorter. A small number of employees can’t handle a large senior population size, he mentioned in his tweet.
Representatives of Macron and Musk did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment sent outside regular business hours.
