Elon Musk embraces CoD memes following PewDiePie Meme Review appearance
Elon Musk’s surprise appearance on YouTuber PewDiePie’s ‘Meme Review’ show almost sent the internet into meltdown on February 22, but now that the dust has settled, new glorious memes have been born.
In his fight to stay above T-Series as the most subscribed YouTuber on the platform, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg drafted in the help of Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk.
After much speculation, Musk finally made an appearance on ‘Meme Review’, one of PewDiePie’s popular shows, in which he quite literally reviews internet memes.
Elon Musk is known as a meme connoisseur himself, and so was the perfect fit for the show, and his massive internet following helped PewDiePie regain a slender lead on T-Series.
After the video was published, Elon Musk began sharing his own memes, including this Call of Duty inspired ‘respawn’ meme, referencing the Mars Opportunity Rover which has finally been rendered offline after 14 years.

Elon Musk hosting Meme Review certainly gave PewDiePie a boost, but whether it will be enough to keep him ahead of the Indian production company, seems unlikely.
T-Series has been gaining on PewDiePie for months, and various ploys have helped the Swede stay on top, but surely he doesn’t have anymore tricks up his sleeve – right?
