Elon Musk is well aware of what's been said of those viral pics of him shirtless on a yacht in Mykonos.

The billionaire was photographed on the luxury yacht earlier this week while on a friend's trip.

One Twitter user commented he'd bet on the SpaceX and Tesla CEO, to which Musk responded: "Haha damn, maybe I should take off my shirt more often."

Another compared him to a dog, standing up on his hind legs.

"My calves are bigger tho," he quipped.

Musk, who regularly responds to fans on Twitter, recently filed to terminate his $44 million contract to buy the social media platform, for which he is now being sued.

This, amid news he'd welcomed twins last year with Shivon Zilis, one of the top executives of his Neuralink startup, whose been floated as one of the people he could tap to run Twitter.

He also welcomed his second child with singer Grimes in December.
