Grimes and Elon Musk: Do fans approve of their ‘SNL’ sketch?

Surprise! After all the wondering about why Elon Musk’s wife, artist & musician Grimes, wasn’t slated to appear on Saturday Night Live, she showed up! Not exactly as a musical guest though – Grimes appeared in a Super Mario Bros. skit alongside her husband, making us wish she stayed home instead. 

Elon Musk was picked to host SNL during its May 8th episode, and Twitter was far from happy. While Musk asked his fans to help him write material, Twitter netizens took to the platform to criticize his obscene wealth and prematurely roast him for name-dropping Dogecoin. 


However, no one on the internet could imagine the worst: Elon Musk & Grimes would single handedly ruin our childhoods with the worst SNL skit in the history of ever. Not only that, their Super Mario flop would make the Bob Hoskins/John Leguzamo movie look like Lord of the Rings

Where do we start? First, WTF is Grimes doing with her arms? Second, it takes a special talent to make any Mario character’s accent sound authentically Italian by comparison, and not the god kind! Third, who wrote this????

We’ve got questions, and Twitter’s got answers! So let’s jump down the green pipe into Twitter’s takes on Elon Musk & Grimes’s bizarre appearances on SNL. 


At least they included Grimes 🤷

I mean, no one was expecting to see her, so I guess Elon Musk gets a point for keeping that in the bag? 


On the other hand, who picked her to play Peach? Some Twitter netizens are happy, others think it was a slap in the face. 


Nintendo purists

For the last time, Princess Peach 👏 is 👏 not 👏 also 👏 Italian!!!!! 


Wow, if you think Twitter is mean, Diay just threw some really, really harsh shade at Grimes! 


 That accent was really over the top though! 


Wait . . . that was Grimes

A lot of people on Twitter had no clue. 


A lot of people. 


Grimes who? 

And then there are people who have no clue who Elon Musk & Grimes are. Plankton and his computer? #Accurate


Free Grimes! 

Then, other Twitter netizens thought the performance was so horrible, it could’ve stood in for a cry for help. Does Grimes need a plumber? 

Sad Elon

Don’t make fun of Dogecoin – you’ll make Elon Musk sad! 


After the show . . . 

Grimes looked like she was going to NYC Comic Con for the afterparty and Elon Musk was her confused dad. 


Could’ve been better 

Also, we think everyone in America would tune in to see that. 

We think if this is what Elon Musk & Grimes think is good comedy, we shudder at the future of entertainment when we’re all working away for Dogecoin on SpaceX’s Martian colonies. But what were your thoughts? Drop em in the comments below!
