Always the innovator, Elon Musk is crowdsourcing ideas for his upcoming “Saturday Night Live” appearance – and pitching some of his own sketch premises on social media.
“Throwing out some skit ideas for SNL. What should I do?” the Tesla CEO and SpaceX chief engineer, 49, tweeted Saturday. Musk is scheduled to host the show on May 8, joined by musical guest Miley Cyrus, the show announced late last month.
He wasted no time sharing the ideas he’d like to see come to reality: “Irony Man,” a character who “defeats villains using the power of irony,” “Baby Shark & Shark Tank,” who “merge to form Baby Shark Tank” and “Woke James Bond.”

Musk’s tweets garnered attention from cast member Chris Redd, who offered an edit to the business mogul’s word choice.
“First I’d call Em sketches,” he replied with a laughing/crying emoji.
But Redd noted his response wasn’t an act of defiance against the upcoming host, as many – including Chrissy Teigen – have wondered.
“everything is fine,” the comedian tweeted Saturday, reminding those who perceived his tweet as a dig at Musk that he is a “professional (trash) talker.”
