Elon Musk fights Jeff Bezos in the latest Taiwanese Animators cartoon

SpaceX finally landed its Falcon 9 rocket this week, which is a big deal. And now it’s gotten the ultimate big deal treatment: an appropriately absurd video from the Taiwanese Animators YouTube account.

The video focuses more on the growing spat between SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, who also has a space company. Bezos’ Blue Origin landed its own rocket one month ago, and the two have argued directly and indirectly over which company’s accomplishment was more impressive. The animators’ take? Musk “wants to send people on a one-way ticket to Mars,” while “Bezos just wants to send rich douches on vacation.”

How does being “rich” necessarily make you a “douche?” Especially when you’re spreading around a lot of money and keeping a lot of people employed?
