Elon Musk to Star in The Simpsons

“The Musk Who Fell to Earth.”

If people didn’t know him before, they will after his appearance in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons. Executive producer, Al Jean, has confirmed via Twitter that Tesla CEO Elon Musk will have a significant role in the show’s 26th season. “Elon Musk in ep 1/11 and not a "kiss ass" celebrity guest star turn: Burns tries to kill him, and we reveal Musk's master password,” read the tweet. The episode will be called “The Musk Who Fell to Earth,” and in it Mr. Burns transpires to lose his fortune to the Tesla boss.

With his name in the title and Al Jean’s tweet, it’s pretty clear Musk will have more than just a couple of lines to say. Incidentally, this will be the second time Musk has appeared on The Simpsons, with his name featuring on a can of body spray in a previous episode. In response to that, Tesla said “You know you're famous when you get featured on the Simpsons." The EV maker will be a household name after his next spot on the show.
