It seems that, when he’s not trying to land drone rockets on barges or working on the plan to take over Mars, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is playing what everyone else is currently playing: Blizzard’s delightfully fun Overwatch.
Musk hopped on Twitter to make sure everyone who follows him for things about Science is aware that Overwatch is pretty cool.
As it turns out, Musk is a known games nerd. He goes for shooters like Overwatch, and like millions of fans, he might have some loyalty to Blizzard thanks to more than a decade of World of Warcraft, to say nothing of the games in the franchise that came before that popular massively multiplayer game (and which is now a movie).
Blizzard was paying attention to Musk’s endorsement, and came up with a delightful answer.
@elonmusk Wow! We’re so honored to have your recommendation. By the way, if you need any astronauts, we have a gorilla with experience.— Overwatch (@PlayOverwatch) June 6, 2016
Seems, however, Blizzard didn’t consider that if anybody already has a super-smart genetically enhanced scientist astronaut gorilla, it’s probably Elon Musk.
