After having waited outside the Twitter headquarters for about three months, Fidias was apparently on the verge of giving up when he came across a video taken during the FIFA World Cup in Qatar of children requesting Elon Musk to hug him.
On National Hugging Day, Elon Musk finally allowed a YouTuber who had been camping outside the Twitter headquarters in San Francisco for months, to hug him.
Fidias or Fifi Panayiotou had been chronicling his mission to hug the billionaire and on Sunday he shared a photo with Musk and tweeted, “We are living in a simulation of Elon Musk! Happy National Hugging Day everyone.”

A Twitter user responded to Fidias’ tweet by writing, “You should thank that kid in the Qatar World Cup final for convincing Elon Musk to meet you! Finally.” Elon Musk concurred.

“He wants to hug you,” the child is heard saying in the video, to which Musk responds, perplexed: “I know… so what? What should I do in this situation? “Would you like me to hug this guy?” Musk added, “All right if you want me to hug him, I’ll hug him,” after the kids cheered a yes.
Speaking about agreeing to hug Fidias, Musk tweeted, “The kids I talked to just had one request, which was to hug this guy who keeps trying to hug me in SF. I double-checked to see if they were certain, and they were, so I will.”
