While it seemed that Musk was hell-bent on hosting the show, PewDiePie isn’t so sure that the collaboration will actually come to fruition, as stated during an episode of ‘Meme Review’ on February 2.
PewDiePie appeared to tease Musk’s appearance on the show before ultimately shutting it down - even joking that fans would have to wait until “the next millenia.”
“I guess we will check the next millenia to see if he can appear on ‘Bonus Meme,’” Pewds said of the issue. “...yeah, he’s never coming on.”
Musk made waves across the internet after tagging PewDiePie in a hilarious Tweet on January 27, where he was pictured holding one of his infamous flamethrowers aloft, with the caption, “Host meme review?”

While PewDiePie’s response hinted that the collab could drastically boost his subscribers in light of his war with Bollywood label T-Series, it looks like Musk’s ‘Bonus Meme’ segment may never come to light.
Musk wouldn’t be the first celebrity to make an appearance on the show, should he end up accepting in the future; conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro hosted 'Bonus Meme' in November of 2018, after which PewDiePie made an attempt to invite controversial rapper Tekashi69 onto a later episode.
However, Tekashi currently faces an extended time in prison, while Elon Musk is still giving PewDiePie the silent treatment - for now.
