Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk made his much-anticipated Saturday Night Live debut this weekend, hosting the show and appearing in a variety of sketches. He played Wario from Nintendo’s Mario series (his partner Grimes appeared in that sketch too) and a doctor on a soap opera called GenZ Hospital. He was bowtie-wearing dogefather Lloyd Ostertag on Weekend Update; a cowboy; and a lovestruck producer on an Icelandic TV show. He also played himself in a SpaceX sketch. Watch Musk’s SNL moments, below.
