It’s a well-known fact that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, a New York Congresswoman, and Tesla Chief Elon Musk do not see eye to eye on many issues. AOC has voiced her disapproval of Musk for a long time, and even more since he took control of Twitter.
This parody video uses edited clips from Musk and AOC’s interviews to make it appear like they have resolved their differences and are ready to start something new.
Musk’s video was taken from an interview Tesla CEO Leslie Stahl gave to “60 Minutes” journalist Leslie Stahl. The seen of US Senator is taken from a CBS interview she did with Anderson Cooper in 2019. AOC smiles at the camera and starts the conversation by saying “I’m sorry.” Musk quickly responds.
Ocasio Cortez can be heard saying “I’m violating all the rules”, to which Musk responds “everyone makes mistakes”.
The fifty three second video gives the impression that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez or Musk are having a deep conversation. The video was created by combining interviews given by the tech mogul as well as the progressive politician.
It was then posted to Twitter with the caption, “Elon Musk & AOC finally sorted out their differences.” This is the crazy chemistry between them.
The amusing video received over 11 million views and 42k retweets. It also got 260k likes. Tesla’s chief even noticed it. The post was commented upon by the Tesla chief with an emoji showing a heart with hands. Netiznes watched the exchange closely and replied with memes.
