They joined forces for a skit on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live episode: Musical guest Miley Cyrus and host Elon Musk appeared in a Mars-themed skit on the show.
Musk, of course, is the founder, CEO, CTO, and chief designer of SpaceX.
In the sketch, Elon played himself, communicating with the space station which was running out of air after enduring a solar storm.
And the only one who volunteered to help – even if it would mean certain death – was Chad, the jolly guy played by a Pete Davidson.

Miley, meanwhile, played a compassionate space station resident, who had a romantic relationship with Chad and wanted to say goodbye.
“Chad! I will always cherish what we had together, ”exclaimed Miley’s character, to which Chad simply replied,“ Okay.
After noticing that she would “always cherish what we had together,” Cyrus added, “Oh, my God, I wish we could have sex one last time.

He’s ready: After noticing that she would “ always cherish what we’ve had together, ” Cyrus added, “ Oh, my God, I wish we could have sex one last time ”
The camera then turned to a totally naked Chad, before adding, “But we can’t.”
Then, Chad was suddenly back in his spacesuit.
Subsequently, when Miley informed him that she was pregnant and that he was the father, Chad said “No thanks” and sealed the airlock, preferring the fatal Martian environment to fatherhood.

The sketch then took a gruesome turn, when Chad mistakenly took off his helmet in the harsh Martian environment – and his head exploded.
Saturday’s episode featured Cyrus performing two songs, including the eponymous track from his latest album Plastic Hearts.
The other was a recent collaboration with Kid Laroi, where she appeared on the remix of her viral track Without You.
The decision to bring in Tesla CEO and “ Technoking ” Elon Musk to host the NBC sketch show was seen as a risky bet by creator Lorne Michaels to raise ratings and broaden audiences.
Oops: But when Elon tells him to give them a better look on his face, Chad absently begins to remove his helmet, causing it to explode and coating the inside of his helmet with bloody red jelly that is diffused across the Earth.
Hero: He’s able to turn the air back on, and Elon and everyone back on Earth greet him before they put a video feed of his face on the screens of metropolises around the world.
For the first time in SNL’s 46-year history, the episode featuring Musk was broadcast live internationally on YouTube to more than 100 countries. The stream was not available to US viewers.
“SNL is a global phenomenon and this livestream marks the first time audiences around the world will see the show simultaneously with the United States,” Frances Berwick, president of NBCU Entertainment Networks, said in a statement.
“It’s incredibly exciting to create this global event with host Elon Musk and musical guest Miley Cyrus,” he added.

Saturday’s episode of the show quickly became one of the most anticipated of all time, due to the decision to name the controversial Tesla boss as the host for the evening.
The move sparked an instant reaction from her longtime cast members when it surfaced last month, with many searches at Musk on social media.
Even hours before the live show, tensions were still boiling with sources claiming some of the cast were “ getting a little too fat for their panties. ”
Musk’s girlfriend Grimes also hinted that she would join him and Miley in an Instagram post where she told fans, ‘Tune in to SNL tonight and watch me try to act ”.
Grimes appeared as Princess Peach for the Mario trial.
Controversial: Many had disputed the business mogul being asked to host, with some arguing for Miley to do “double duty” as host and performer instead, and things continued to stir this week on Twitter; Musk photographed in 2020
