Billionaire engineer PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s Meme Review, as the SpaceX CEO tweeted the long-awaited update for the collaboration.

Musk has been teasing the internet for months of the possibility of him hosting PewDiePie’s popular segment, and now the saga seems like it will finally be nearing its end.

In a short tweet, Musk confirmed that he “did meme review last night with Justin Roiland,” which appears to be too cryptic for some fans to believe.

The outlook for Musk joining in Meme Review’s shenanigans looked grim when the Pewds announced the that he was “never coming on.”

Along with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland, Musk seemed to be addressing the only meme-review segment he’s been linked to in the past.

Meaning, that although neither Musk or PewDiePie have confirmed his presence on the actual show, this could be a hint for a future bit to come elsewhere.

The possibility of another bait-n-switch crossed the minds of many Twitter users who voiced their disbelief. The up and down roller coaster of Musk hosting Meme Review seems to have taken its toll on some.

PewDiePie’s Meme Review is a popular mainstay for a lot of the Bro Army, but the appearance of Elon Musk could attract many more eyes to the Pewd’s channel.

The development comes at the heels of another mysterious exchange between the Pewds and Musk on February 11 where the billionaire seemed to renew his interest in hosting Meme Review.

Although, if the cameo appearance on PewDiePie’s show does come to fruition, it could be the saving grace the Pewd’s and many fans have been waiting for.

We don’t know when it will release but it should be sometime soon as T-Series is gaining on PewDiePie by the hour and he’ll need all the help he can get to maintain his spot on top of YouTube.

YouTuber Karl Jacobs received a whopping $100,000 from Mr Beast after winning a star studded Among Us game, beating creators like Corpse Husband, PewDiePie, Sykkuno, and Dream to the punch.

Among Us is tense at the best of times, but adding an enormous cash prize to the mix is guaranteed to add an extra layer of frustration to the equally loved and loathed cafeteria meetings.

And who better to shake things up than YouTube’s favorite philanthropist, Mr Beast a.k.a. Jimmy Donaldson. Jimmy is well known for putting friends and fans through bizarre challenges to win huge amounts of money.

Particularly since launching his gaming channel earlier this year, the star has been pitting viewers and often fellow creators against each other in games like Minecraft and Among Us.

Mr Beast has over 10 million subscribers on his gaming channel.

This time, Jimmy hosted a star-studded line up of players for an Among Us tournament, featuring the likes of rising stars Corpse Husband, Dream, and Sykkuno, along with classic fan favorites like PewDiePie and Jacksepticeye. All of them were in with a chance of winning $100,000.

The game was set to only have one imposter, meaning there was nowhere to hide for whoever ended up with the mischievous role.

Sykkuno was imposter the first time round, and even though he was caught in the act of killing someone by Corpse, it actually took a good few rounds for the other players to vote him out. Though as the game ended fairly early, Mr Beast let everyone have one more shot at victory.

Karl was the imposter for the second and final game, and the tension ramped up progressively throughout the game as he managed kill after kill without being voted off.

As the number of players dwindled, the vote offs began to get more dramatic, with Jimmy constantly reminding the crew that there was a huge pot of money on the line.

After a tense final few minutes where it wasn’t clear who would sway the game, eventually Karl was deemed the winner, and was overjoyed to have won the huge $100k prize.

The video had a great response from fans who loved the iconic mix of creators combined with the high stakes prize, and there’s no doubt that more content will be on the way from this team.
