Joe Rogan Straight Up Laughing In Elon Musk's Face While He Explains How To Pronounce His Daughter's Name Is Hysterical

The internet has been abuzz about X AE A-12 Musk for a few days now, but this is Elon's first time explaining the pronunciation and my god if it's not the funniest, saddest thing I've ever seen in my life. 

I mean, this man is BROKEN. I don't know what he really expected with that goddamn name but it kinda seems like he was taken aback by Joe's reaction? Like he thought 100% of the internet saying it was stupid was just a joke? The world conspired to be part of a prank pretending it wasn't a cool name, or something? This face is not the face of a guy who knows it's silly.

You know you're in trouble when you're about to explain how to pronounce your daughter's name and the first question is? "Is it a placeholder?" It's a polite way of asking, "Yo were you guys really fucked up on some kind of rich person drug that I haven't heard about? Are you gonna be changing this?"

I can't think of anything ruder than straight up LOLing in the face of a new father as he explains the meaning of his first born's name, but I also can't think of a reaction more appropriate to learning the origin story of X AE A-12. Just an unbelievable clip. From "is it a placeholder" to "Yeah, she's great at names" to the laughter to the facial reactions to Musk finally taking offense to Rogan laughing at the A-12 being the greatest name ever and hitting him with the "it's true," it was all pure gold.
