Why Is Jeff Bezos On A Horse? Here Are Some Random Guesses

Why Is Jeff Bezos On A Horse? Here Are Some Random Guesses

Why is Amazon CEO and world’s richest man Jeff Bezos a cowboy now? On Monday—New Year’s Eve—the Western-themed apparel store Kemo Sabe posted a video of Bezos riding a horse right on into what appears to be the entrance of its Aspen, Colorado branch (apparently accompanied by his brother, Mark).

Here’s a few guesses at just what the hell is going on here:

  • It’s a metaphor for capital’s relationship with labour

  • Starting on his “Western Values” theme for the 2020 elections

  • Work on the horse people from Sorry to Bother You is going slower than expected

  • Bezos’ hallowed feet may never touch the lowly ground, and there wasn’t a helipad like, right there in the street

  • He’s a rootin’-tootin’ outlaw on the run from increasing scrutiny of Amazon’s business model

  • Bezos is not, in fact, in control of the horse. No one must ever know this

  • You can just ride a horse into stores in Colorado if you feel like it maybe

  • Alternately, Bezos can ride a horse wherever the hell he wants

Your guess is as good as ours. Enjoy your New Year’s Eve, and please, accept the mystery.
