Elon Musk hosted Saturday Night Live last night and millions of people around the world tuned in to see what he would do. After the dust settles, one particular sketch has clearly made it to the top of social media trends thanks to Musk’s portrayal of Super Mario Bros. franchise villain Wario. There are still plenty of people talking about Dogecoin falling heavily during the SNL, but Nintendo fans seem to have really enjoyed seeing Wario in court for the murder of Mario.
Elon Musk is no stranger to gaming so it wasn’t a complete shock to see it Saturday night liveput in some video games last night. However, not many expected to see Musk as Wario in court for murdering Mario during an intense Super Mario Kart incident. Mario’s brother Luigi (played by SNL actor Kyle Mooney) testified against Musk’s Wario, claiming it was a banana peel that the villain threw and that killed his plumber brother.
The SNL sketch goes into detail about how terrible the Nintendo villain Wario really is, and mentions that he has no real friends other than Waluigi, the weird and evil Luigi who was played by Kate McKinnon. Things get stranger when Wario claims Mario abused mushrooms while Musk’s wife Grimes emerges as Princess Peach, who is apparently having an affair with Mario’s brother Luigi. For the most part, the fans of the sketch comedy show Musk and Nintendo enjoyed the sketch very much. Many referred to it as the best of the night, and one person claimed it was the funniest thing they have ever seen. Another said: “Never in a million years would I have thought this would happen. Never. Wario at SNL.”
Nintendo fans unfamiliar with the last episode of SNL woke up wondering why the classic Super Mario Bros. villain was trending. And while a lot of people are glad that the villain gets some attention, there are quite a few who are quite baffled by Elon Musk’s portrayal, and some call it disrespectful. Regardless, SNL can’t always please everyone, and Musk is a rather polarizing figure right now. Musk later tweeted that the Wario sketch was his favorite of the night.
Right now, Doge Coin is on its way down as more SpaceX rockets soar. Speaking of which Elon Musk and SpaceX freaked people around the world earlier this week when they thought that Starlink satellites are actually UFOs coming down to take over Earth. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case, although there are still plenty of people out there who can’t wait to shake hands with a real alien in the near future. For now, all we have to do is sit back and see how Musk is hosting SNL. Thanks to the official Saturday Night Live YouTube channel, you can investigate Wario in court for the murder of Mario.
Never in a million years would I have thought this would happen. Never. Wario on SNL. 🤘 # snl # ElonSNL # dogetothemoon # Dogefather # wario # dogecoinpic.twitter.com / gZU1nBUfGJ

At the time, one of the most successful tech innovators was hosting SNL and starring Wario on national television. pic.twitter.com/Kbtu3qfVCN

It’s really tragic that Nintendo killed Mario and only a few months later murdered Elon Musk Wario. https://t.co/UweK10vSRS
