Musk posted a humorous Tweet on January 27, which featured a picture of the tech millionaire holding aloft one of his own flame throwers with the caption, “Host meme review?”
PewDiePie had a fairly bemused response to the request, appearing to entertain the possibility of their collaboration on the show.
“✋🤠🤚 Don’t shoot!” Pewds replied. “Please host 🙏 We need this!”
That wasn’t the end of Musk’s interaction, either; he likewise had a short conversation with popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson, who triple-dog-dared the CEO to host the show - to which Musk raised a $5 fee.

“I’ll give you $5 and I’ll buy a Tesla,” MrBeast returned.
“You drive a hard bargain, but… okay,” Musk replied.

This wouldn’t be the first time a notable figure has appeared on Meme Review, should the Musk collab actually come to fruition; conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro made an appearance on the show in early November of 2018, after being jokingly invited on by PewDiePie in a previous segment.
Musk himself is no stranger to the internet community. He and Fortnite pro FaZe Tfue had a hilarious interaction on Twitter in early January 2019, after the gamer purchased a Tesla due to Musk’s response to one of his Tweets.
Musk has likewise spoken out about his favorite character in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, claiming that his fighter of choice is Zero Suit Samus.
