I guess he'll give anyone an interview.

    I tried searching for it but can't find the first interview. This is the second time he has granted that "journalist" an interview.

    As incredible as it may seem, the interviewer is the daughter of Tim Draper, the founder of Draper Fisher Jurvetson. I don't know whether it's just meant to be silly, but it makes me uncomfortable.

    At first I was going to say "Oh come on guys, it can't be that bad!"

    Then after watching it, I am like...

    To us, but as a chance to get the Tesla and SpaceX names out in front of kids who will be buying cars ten years from the show's air date, it's not a bad idea.

    Unless those kids are valley girls, I reckon those kids would find it embarassing.

    I think this was taped a while ago as Elon mentioned they had just unveiled the Model S, so this was probably done back in 2011 or so.

    Yeah. This is an old interview done a few years ago.

    More like 2009 soon after the prototype reveal. It was actually rather er... entertaining, I thought.

    I think she was parodying Valley Girls. Regardless, to his credit Elon did it with good humor.

    I did enjoy the piece with Rainn Wilson more, and was pleased to learn that Elon is an atheist.

    And I think that about covers it. She's the daughter of a major investor & it was done a few years back when Tesla was not exactly a household name - getting the name in front of kids was not a bad idea. Nor was it a bad idea agreeing to do an interview with the daughter of one of your investors.

    I don't care when it was done or the motivation to do it - I just clicked out after 30 seconds because it was painful to watch.

    It's for the best. I tried the links again and can confirm they've been taken down.
