Elon Musk has his very own electric car company, plans to walk on Mars before the end of his life, is a key part of the press to privatize space travel, wants to build a rapid transit system that will make the trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco in just 30 minutes, and, you know, PayPal. He’s basically spent his career trying to make all the stuff we see in science fiction movies a reality. (If anyone is going to build an Iron Man suit, it’s totally going to be Musk.) And he’s doing what every celebrity worth his salt before him has done, he’s going to be on The Simpsons, and now you can check out these two clips from his episode.
Even though I haven’t regularly kept with Fox’s beloved animated family for a few years now, it’s still the barometer that I use to truly gauge celebrity. You’re not really famous until you’ve been on an episode of The Simpsons, that’s the measuring stick I use in that regard.
