The new couple has inspired numerous memes and headlines pondering the nature of their relationship, especially since their conscious coupling appears to have started with a shared joke about Roko’s Basilisk, an AI thought experiment about robots potentially murdering humans.
But one headline caught Weird Al’s eye, and he went full dad joke on it.

We’re assuming the “Um, what?” is in reference to “Weird AI” resembling Weird Al, but he might just be as confused as the rest of us. However, Musk responded to his tweet, claiming that his “a capella cover of ‘Amish Paradise’ is irresistible” and now people are calling for the two (Weird Musk?) to collaborate.

So maybe the robots will come for us sooner.
