Musk talked of warming Mars up using greenhouse gases, the first baby “the first Martian” to be born on the planet, and his name, which “led to a lot of mocking in Junior High.” It’s eight slightly odd minutes of big topics interspersed with a few jokes, as well as this nugget of information: Elon Musk goes to Burning Man–once dressed as Darth Vader.

And no prizes for guessing what Musk probably barters with: At the end of the clip you can see him swapping a bite of Wilson’s chicken burger for a Tesla model. You can see the full clip below.
