Tesla, SpaceX, and Twitter CEO Elon Musk reaffirmed on TV that he would eat McDonald’s Happy Meals if the fast food giant began accepting dogecoin (DOGE) payments.

Grimace is the fluffy purple character who acts with Ronald McDonald in the McDonaldland commercials.
The topic came up again this week when Twitter user Dogedesigner asked Musk on Thursday if his offer was still open. The Tesla boss replied with 100 emojis, indicating that he still supported the offer.
Following an exchange between McDonald’s Twitter account and Musk last January, Glimmercoin (GRIMACE), a crypto token that has nothing to do with McDonald’s or Musk, was launched. At the time of this writing, each Grimace coin is trading at $0.5879.
Musk, known as Dogefather in the meme crypto community, has long been a supporter of dogecoin. His electric car company, Tesla, now accepts Doge for some of its products, and Musk says SpaceX will follow suit. In addition, his Boring Company accepts DOGE payments for some of its vehicles.
The billionaire previously revealed that he personally owns Bitcoin, Ether, and DOGE coins. He said last June that he would continue to buy and support DOGE; in July he confirmed that Tesla had not sold any DOGE, and in November he said, ” Dogecoin to the Moon.”
