Elon Musk has in comparison to many of the people – Steve Jobs, Henry Ford and P. T. Barnum to name a few.

Ever the showman, Musk’s latest social media post is one of his more unusual.

In a bizarre series of Instagram posts, Musk, 46, is seen learning how to pour flaming absinthe over a number of glass windows in a Jerusalem speakeasy.

“Everything is better with fire …,” Musk wrote in the caption.

The video takes almost 20 seconds, see Musk handed over the two glasses that burn bright, blue flames. Musk pour the contents of one glass into the other, to combine them again.

It is not quite clear what Musk was doing in Jerusalem, but the video and the following photos have gone viral, garnering more than 160,000 likes.

Musk, who has almost 7 million followers on Instagram, normally keeps his Instagram posts a little more focused on his companies, including SpaceX, Tesla, and The Boring Company.

This is not Musk’s first foray in flames – The Boring Company sold more than $10 million worth of flamethrowers, Musk tweeted last month.
