This video comes to us via Valleywag since its host, Venture Capitalist's daughter Jesse Draper is taking her YouTube show to the illustrious world of public access television. While this video comes from 2009, us at the Jalopnik World Headquarters Bunker Next To Travis' Apartment had never seen it and boy is it a good'n!
In the two-part video, Draper talks to Elon Musk about Tesla and SpaceX making sure to ask him how rockets work because THAT'S TOTALLY A SENSIBLE THING TO DO WHEN YOU HAVE ELON MUSK ON YOUR SHOW. IT'S NOT AS IF ANYONE IN HISTORY HAS EXPLAINED HOW ROCKETS WORK BEFORE. IT'S LIKE TAKING A BULLDOZER TO A SANDCASTLE.
Also this gem:
"Do you put gas in the car?"
There are no words.
I digress–Musk seems to be enjoying talking with Draper, and when I say enjoying I actually mean plotting out the most ruthless way to fire his PR team while trying to answer Draper's inane questions. I don't want to spoil too much of the greatness of the video, so instead, here are some screenshots of the best moments.
Not sure how that last one slipped through the cracks.
