Elon Musk’s appearance on PewDiePie Meme Review, which gave a chance for the audience to see his funny side.
Elon Musk made an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience 1169
To me Elon Musk represents a true visionary, an engineer in a suit and tie. The media and sceptics feel that Elon represents everything that is wrong with Billionaire they put labels on him, and tare down his character, but I believe if they were to read into his story, they would see someone that isn't perfect and doesn't pretend to be but had a vision for the future, that very easily might not of happened and shouldn't but he perceived even when he was told he wouldn't succeed. He doesn't fit in a mould or template so he's unconventional he has an engineers mind that looks at things with a child like imagination, but that also has real life implications, that I believe has fundamentally has given a slight glimpse of hope for the future. Just imagine a world without him. No Space X, no Tesla, possibly no Paypal and more.
