Elon Musk on The Colbert Report – Click above to watch the video after the break

Imagine that, Elon Musk has a sense of humor. Proof of this can be seen in the video pasted after the break, where you'll see the co-founder of Paypal, Tesla Motors and Space X have a sit-down interview with Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report.

As always, Colbert goes into the interview with a lighthearted slant, making a few comic-relief jabs along the way. For instance, after detailing Musk's seemingly heroic take on the automotive and space exploration industries, Colbert point-blank asks Musk whether he's a super hero or a super villain. We'll let you figure that one out...

Our favorite quote, though, is this:
You have these electric cars that uses no fossil fuels, but then you've also got this rocket, this Space X that puts the rocket into space, using about as much fuel as 2,000,000 Hummers. So... are you just trying to break even as spectacularly as possible?
Ha! There are plenty more gems in the video, and we don't want to spoil the whole thing for you. So just go check out the video after the break, won't you?
