McDonald's joked it would accept dogecoin for payment only if Tesla accepts "grimacecoin" as payment.

The fast-food chain was responding to Tesla CEO Elon Musk's tweet on Tuesday that he'd eat a Happy Meal on TV if McDonald's accepts dogecoin as a form of payment.

Grimace is a rotund purple character featured in some McDonald's marketing campaigns.

Musk is a long-running supporter of dogecoin — a Japanese Shiba Inu-themed cryptocurrency started as a joke in 2013. Earlier this month, Tesla began accepting dogecoin for some of its merch

"I was doing a thing called 'Hot Girl Summer' — I heard about it in rap songs — and I was like, 'This sounds fun,'" she said with a laugh.
