“I’m really excited for my Mother’s Day gift,” deadpanned Maye Musk, mother of billionaire Elon Musk.
“I just hope it’s not dogecoin (DOGE, -30.05%).”
“It is,” the Tesla and SpaceX CEO joked.
Musk, the billionaire trying to ferry people to Mars and build electric cars for Earth, hosted NBC’s Saturday Night Live program on, uh, Saturday night.
As expected, the meme cryptocurrency dogecoin came up. During a Weekend Update segment (a parody of news shows), Musk explained cryptocurrency generally to the NBC Show’s audience, before hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost repeatedly asked him “what is dogecoin.”
