Elon Musk asked fans to share their sketch ideas as he prepares to host “SNL” on May 8 — after some of the show’s stars expressed outrage that he nabbed the gig. “Throwing out some skit ideas for SNL. What should I do?” the 49-year-old asked his 52.5 million Twitter followers over the weekend.
The controversial Tesla CEO followed up the tweet with three of his own pitches: “Woke James Bond,” “Baby Shark & Shark Tank merge to form Baby Shark Tank,” and “Irony Man – defeats villains using the power of irony.”
Some commenters suggested ideas, including, “Extraterrestrials found your Tesla Roadster sent to space in 2018 & are trying to figure out what it is,” “You play Chris Hansen on “To Catch a PP loan” with Ross Gerber,” and, “Something about how it is all a simulation,” while many of the responses to Musk’s tweets were real zingers.
“You meeting with SNL writers using the same motivational techniques you use with $TSLA engineers. Elon: I need this done tomorrow or you’re fired. SNL Writer: In your dreams a–hole,” one user responded.
