On Thursday, Elon Musk appeared in a commercial to promote his upcoming appearance on the sketch comedy series alongside musical guest Miley Cyrus and longtime SNL cast member Cecily Strong.
In the short clip,the Tesla CEO subtly addressed all of the controversy surrounding his hosting duties, saying: “Hi, I’m Elon Musk, and I’m hosting SNL this week with musical guest Miley Cyrus. And I’m a wild card, so there’s no telling what I may do.”
Known for being a bit of a wild card herself, Miley Cyrus added, “Same here. Rules? No thanks!” That’s when Cecily Strong made sure to note the elephant in the room, adding, “It’s also the Mother’s Day show, so your moms are going to be here,” to which Miley replied, “Forget what I said.”
The Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk added, “Fine, we’ll be good… ish.” When Miley Cyrus reposted the clip to her Instagram page, she wrote in her caption: “Sorry in advance Mom.”
