It actually happened!

Elon Musk has confirmed that he has recorded his much-hyped instalment of PewDiePie's show Meme Review, along with Justin Roiland from Rick and Morty.

The saga all started when the eccentric billionaire tweeted simply: "Host meme review?" Alongside picture of him holding a giant looking gun and standing in what appears to be some kind of futuristic film set.

PewDiePie quote-tweeted this curious missive and replied:

"✋🤠🤚 dont shoot
please host 🙏"

Indicating clearly that the Swedish YouTuber super star was very much open to the idea.

Now it seems, it's actually happened.

Elon Musk tweeted (Feb 18): "Did meme review last night with Justin Roiland from @RickandMorty". For the uninitiated, Justin Roiland is one of the creators of Rick and Morty and also the voice of both Rick and Morty.

Felix is, as I'm sure you already know, currently locked in a battle with Indian media company T-Series over who will end up as the most-subscribed YouTuber in the world. PewDiePie currently holds the title, but only just - at the time of writing the gap between them has thinned to as little as 14,000 subscribers.

Plenty of YouTubers (including Markiplier and Mr Beast) have made efforts to back the Swedish meme-reviewer in his quest to keep his crown. The support of Elon (and Roiland) will surely help to stave off T-Series for a little while longer.
