Last night, Elon Musk hosted Saturday Night Live. While Musk has made some onscreen appearances in the past \u2014 including lending his voice to a Rick and Morty episode and playing himself in Iron Man 2 \u2014 comedy can be a trickier task. At times, Musk\u2019s presence recalled the late-80s period when a number of prominent athletes hosted the show, a time when SNL\u2018s writers had to figure out how to make someone like, say, Wayne Gretzky mesh relatively seamlessly in a comedy setting. One of the most successful efforts to work Musk into the SNL ensemble came via a filmed sketch about people interacting after quarantining for over a year. The sketch follows three conversations, and occasionally reveals what the participants are thinking \u2014 including a guy who may be unwittingly flirting with his cousin. That the sketch pairs Musk with Heidi Garner, who often plays characters with an offbeat energy, works in its favor; so too does the fact that awkward interactions are literally the point here. If some of the episode\u2019s sketches seemed designed for their meme potential (Gen Z Hospital, we\u2019re looking at you) over all else, this one found a way to let Musk click with the ensemble more organically.
