    The US visionary and Tesla founder let his Russian alter-ego "Elon Slavsk" out as he chose the Slavic language to discuss with users aliens’ refuge on Mars, where his Space X is going to send a mission.

    The head of Tesla and Space X, Elon Musk, opted for Russian on Twitter to comment on a guess by some users that the visionary and his company are exploring outer space to bring aliens to Earth. Instead of answering the provocative question posed in Russian, Musk, also in Russian asked, “Where are aliens?”

    ​The debates did not stop at this as another user responded in Russian that aliens live underground on Mars and that they broke the Opportunity rover when it got too close.

    Musk did not ignore this claim, instead showing off his brilliant command of Russian idioms. He responded with a Russian saying that literally means “That’s where the dog is buried” and can be translated as “This is where the catch lies”.

    ​However, he was not done demonstrating his Russian, as he resorted to another Russian saying to rebuff one user’s remark, reading “you slav you lose!!!!!!” Apparently, to express his disbelief and skepticism, Musk posted a catchphrase that can literally be translated as “They say they milk chickens” and is considered quite rude.

    ​Musk’s Rus-capade ignited commenters, who flooded the thread with sarcastic comments, memes, and gifs.

    ​Some came up with new nicknames for the entrepreneur and his Russian alter-ego.

    ​Milked chickens deserved special reference.

    ​Some did not let Musk get off discussing aliens.
