How do you know you’ve truly made it in America? When your name and likeness is used on an episode of The Simpsons. From the King of Pop to the President of the United States, everybody who is anybody has been featured on the Simpsons, and soon Elon Musk will join their elite ranks.
Elon Musk will be featured in an upcoming episode of the Simpsons, where he will face off against nuclear power magnate C. Montgomery Burns. Musk won’t just be making a cameo though; the episode entitled The Musk Who Fell From Earth reportedly features the Tesla Motors and SpaceX entrepreneur’s bankrupting Burns. The episode will focus heavily on Musk reports Jalopnik, which means green energy and possibly even the Model S will feature into the show.
Musk has been called, among other things, the real Tony Stark for his futuristic vision of how the world should be.
In addition to pushing humanity towards a new space race and embracing electric vehicles, Musk has also demonstrated some cutting-edge computer technology and a fondness for James Bond. He’s become something of a pop culture icon for geeks and nerds everywhere, not unlike Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye. Hopefully he won’t turn out to be a Hank Scorpio though.
Now that he’s being animated into the Simpsons universe though, he’s achieved true immortality.
