Elon Musk proves once again that he's a man of the people - or, at least, the people who spend a lot of time online.
On Friday, Tesla's chief exec co-hosted mega-popular YouTube star PewDiePie's "Meme Review" segment, sharing the spotlight with "Rick and Mort" co-creator Justin Roiland. Thw two gave their take on popular internet memes, some of which included Musk himself.PewDiePie titled the episode "Will Smith hosts Meme Review," though he was clearly trolling his viewers. Discussions of Smith did come up earlier in the episode, especially about his upcoming role as Genie in Disney's remake of "Aladdin," but it was Musk that was the major reveal - making good on a promise Musk recently made on Twitter.
The segment definitely had its cringey moments, like when Musk gave a brief history on the origin of memes, or had to review a particularly disturbing meme about a dead animal.
Musk's favorite memes included one of himself face swapped with rapper Post Malone, giving the tech billionaire face tattoos and a scruffy beard. Another was a photo of Queen Elizabeth standing next to a bishop on black and white tiles. "Be aware she can move in any direction," read the meme.
Musk gave the chess joke his highest rating of the segment.
PewDiePie mentioned earlier on the show that "after everything this channel has gone through" having Musk "would be the best thing that could possibly happen."Since last year, the controversial Swede has been in danger of being overtaken as YouTube's top channel by an Indian company called T-Series, which largely posts Bollywood music videos. The competition, however, has inspired a campaign by PewDiePie not to let T-Series take his top spot, resulting in massive increases to his monthly subscriber count. Having Musk in his corner could help in that battle.
