Elon Musk, self-proclaimed “Technoking” of Tesla and Imperator of Mars, will be hosting NBC’s Saturday Night Live on May 8. The billionaire brain behind Tesla and SpaceX will be joined by Miley Cyrus as the night’s musical guest.
Having a tech giant like Musk host is an unusual choice, but there have been previous instances when non-actors have hosted the show, including Rudy Giuliani, Al Gore, and even Donald Trump back in 2015. Plus, Musk isn’t unfamiliar with showbiz. As per CNET, he’s had cameos in Iron Man 2, The Simpsons, and even animated hit Rick and Morty.
Musk himself tweeted the news, adding, “Let’s find out just how live Saturday Night Live really is,” with a purple devil emoji.
As expected, there was tons of fanfare on social media as users reacted to the news. Here’s how the Twitterverse reacted:
My favorite Elon Musk sketch from SNL last night was the one where he saved the Earth and became King of Mars and everyone thanked him.— Cody Johnston (@drmistercody) April 25, 2021
I wish I was an SNL writer so I could use Elon's monologue to artificially inflate whatever crypto I just bought.— Matthew Broussard (@mondaypunday) April 26, 2021
I did not have Elon Musk hosting SNL on my 2021 bingo card— The Chairman (@WSBChairman) April 25, 2021
Elon Musk hosting SNL is huge for guys still making "that's what she said" jokes who think they'd be great at hosting SNL.— Josh Gondelman (@joshgondelman) April 24, 2021
