In a continuing bid to perhaps attempt to take over the world, Elon Musk apparently has accepted the opportunity to host the iconic NBC staple “Saturday Night Live.”
The May 8 show from New York City, as its name conveys, is performed live in the Eastern time zone.
Musk is always looking to expand his brand and did make appearances in Marvel’s “Iron Man 2,” in a 2015 episode of “The Simpsons” and in several episodes of “South Park.”
The SpaceX founder and CEO of Tesla has had a big run of action in his business lately, some good, some complicated, and he’s certainly not a reclusive figure.
Among the non-actors to have hosted are former President Donald Trump and the late owner of the New York Yankees George Steinbrenner.
Trump never hosted while president, but did host multiple times, as recently as 2015.
“IDK how much communication you have with Lorne (SNL’s Lorne Michaels) or the higher-ups, but someone needs to tell them that absolutely no one wants this,” one Twitter user replied to SNL. “I can not think of a single person who wants this. and I don’t mean Miley.”
As for potential comedic fodder: Musk and partner Grimes’ son will just have turned 1 year old. He’s named X Æ A-Xii – pronounced (via Musk’s explanation on the Joe Rogan podcast): “It’s just X, the letter X. And then the Æ is, like, pronounced ‘ash.’ And then A-12 is my contribution,” he said. “Archangel-12, the precursor to the SR-71, coolest plane ever.”
And, another cool craft, SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Endeavor just docked with the International Space Station on Saturday morning.
A short time later, its four-person crew joined the seven other astronauts already on board the station.
So, perhaps a sketch involving Musk in outer space?
