The tycoon Elon Musk is back on everyone’s lips. The owner of the social network ‘X’, formerly Twitter, SpaceXhas mocked the situation at the company OpenAI, which is the creator of ChatGPT. This situation occurs after the dismissal of his CEO. Musk mocks with a video of ‘Risitas’, a publication that already has thousands of comments and views. Among them is ‘South Channel’which has requested the rights to the images.
The CEO of Tesla has made use of a ‘historic’ video of the Sevillian comedian Juan Joya Borjaknown as the ‘Giggles‘, during his time on the program ‘Ratones Coloraos’ on Canal Sur, presented by Jesús Quintero, to satirize the departure of Sam Altman from OpenAI, who has signed for Microsoft. The video of the comedian that went viral more than 20 years ago for his unmistakable laugh has been used by Elon Munsk, although with subtitles that have nothing to do with what ‘Risitas’ says and that allude to X and Sam Altman, who co-founded and co-chaired OpenAI with Elon Musk.
The publication that you can see below already accumulates more than 23 million visits, 131,000 likes, 22,000 reposts and 7,000 comments. Many of these reactions belong to Spaniards who do not believe that Elon Musk have used the video.
However, one of the comments most surprising belong to the ‘Andalucía Directo’ program, South Channel. They address Musk as ‘Elondo’ to ask for payment for the rights to the images. “Hello Elondo! We leave you the link where you can request requests for search, sales, transfers and sending of images and programs owned by Canal Sur Televisión,” writes the program, which reminds Musk that the cost of the license Use of images depends on the volume, type of production and its scope of dissemination: “You get “to pay”, which means ‘pay now’“they specify.
