Rick and Morty has been around for almost five-season and yet many people are still finding this amazing show. The series has a lot to offer to a variety of people. And over the years, the show creators and writers have really refined their humor. Maybe that’s why even after almost three years, a hilarious joke from the fourth season is still relevant and funny as it was back then.
The joke takes a dig at the electric personality of the Tesla owner, who was all over the news in the year 2019. Let us take a look at the joke about the real-life Tony Stark.
Elon Tusk in Rick and Morty
In “One Crew Over the Crewcoo’s Morty,” Rick and Morty recruit Elon Tusk. An alternate universe version of Elon Musk to join their crew – and The guy himself voices tusk.
Rick and Morty‘s season 4 episode is an in-depth examination of the heist film genre. Rick breaks down heists into their separate clichés and constructs a computer called Heistatron to manufacture heists automatically.
Unfortunately, Heistatron’s programming includes double-crossing, and it quickly turns rogue, employing nanobots to recruit random humans to join its crew and committing heists on entire worlds.

Rick must create his own team to fight Heistatron. The team includes a ventriloquist dummy that fires arrows to deliver her voice, a half-melted blacksmith, Professor Poopybutthole, and Elon Tusk, the CEO of Tuskla.
Tuskla is launching a range of creative new automobiles, similar to Elon Musk’s Tesla. These cars all have tusks, just like Elon Tusk.
Why not Musk?
Rick states in “One Crew Over the Crewcoo’s Morty” that he chose Elon Tusk as a recruit because “regular Elon can be a bit controlling.”
The sole difference between the two Elons is that one has tusks and the other does not. But Elon Tusk speculates that having tusks as a child influenced his mentality and made him more receptive to cooperating with others.
