Tesla's Elon Musk is known for being one of the public figures who are highly active on social media. Musk is especially interested in a bird app called Twitter because it allows him to freely communicate with his supporters and other public figures.

He has tweeted plenty of controversial and popular posts; some even led to a threat from a hacking group.

Baby Shark

If you have been around the internet for quite some time, there is a high chance that you are aware of Pinkfrog's "Baby Shark" song. It initially went viral back in 2020, and it has become one of the most viewed clips on YouTube. The song even surpassed "Despacito" in views.

For a few months, "Baby Shark" was all over -- you can hear it while grocery shopping, cooling off at the mall, and while scrolling through social media.

If you think that after a year, the craze over "Baby Shark" would already be over, Tesla CEO Elon Musk begs to differ.
