    It is great, was it really made by SpaceX employees? Or used them as actors?

    Wonderful - youTube has wrongly blocked the video.

    I just watched on YouTube. It must have been unblocked. "Gandalf Style" got blocked too for awhile when Gangnam Style was popular, but it's back up now.

    Pretty hilarious video. Blowing up Comcast with the Death Star was funny. Not sure the Orbital Sciences people will like the line about them being retired.

    "Frunk you up" line ROFL.

    Wow amazing effort, I had a grin on my face the entire time. I thought it would just be SpaceX but they are true Elon nerds.

    Hilarious!

    Also notable that Elon's tombstone has him dying in 2188, at the ripe old age of 217 (or are those Martian years?)

    P.S. Here's the video embedded for all those who hate vids opening in a new window:

    Martian years. At 1.88 per Earth year, Elon's going to live to atleast 115 Earth years (well, I'm converting all 217 here) - doable.
