Advertising campaignDeepfake

In an attempt to gain Musk’s attention, reAlpha Tech Corp, a real estate tech startup, releases a deepfake hostage video of Musk tied to a chair.

Hey, remember us? Yep, we are the ones that posted that INSANE video of Elon Musk taking a bubble bath… & we are back for more. This time, we took matters into our own hands & may or may not have kidnapped ol’ Elon’s twin. In case you forgot, we are reAlpha, a startup tech-company democratizing investment in the short term rental market and we are on a mission to enable anyone to invest in the $1.2 Trillion short-term rental real estate industry. The whole purpose of this video is to have you help us get Elon Musk to join our Board.
