Satirical Gaming Site Hard Drive Mag Dunks On Elon Musk On Twitter

Saturday Night Live/NBC


  • Hard Drive Magazine is a satirical gaming website that was founded in 2014.
  • The site’s Twitter account got into an argument with Elon Musk over the holiday weekend.
  • Hard Drive’s responses caused Musk to delete his original tweet.

Have you ever heard of Hard Drive Magazine? Started in 2014 as The Hard Times, the satirical video game news site has racked up over 250,000 followers on Twitter over the years with articles such as “Dragon-Type Trainer’s Entire Personality Being Dragon-Type Trainer” and “Gamestop to Start Selling Previously Funged Tokens”And yet, after years of hard-working writing original gaming content, it would appear that Hard Drive is going to achieve its greatest level of notoriety yet for something entirely different: dunking on Elon Musk.

Over Memorial Day weekend, Musk tweeted (his favorite hobby, of course) a screenshot of a Hard Drive article without a link to the actual article nor the watermark that “appears on every one of” their heard images.

Hard Drive replied to Musk, saying they would “give him a horse” if he stopped sharing their content without crediting them — a reference to a recent report that Musk allegedly “sexually harassed a SpaceX flight attendant by showing his penis to her and offering to buy her a horse,” according to Hard Drive.

This obviously struck a chord with Musk, who lengthily replied saying:

Well, if you make something that looks like a meme & someone (not me) crops off your name, so it goes. Also, this is only a 6/10 meme, so maybe step down from that high horse! The selfless art of anonymous meme creators is something to be admired.

Hard Drive then replied with an article of theirs titled “Elon Musk Admits He Wants To Travel To Mars Because No One Hates Him There Yet”, which caused Musk to say “Less funny than SNL on a bad day. This could make a drunk person sober. Try harder!” This, though, ultimately was an accidental alley-oop for Hard Drive.

What makes all of this hilarious, as Hard Drive points out in their own recap of the events, the consecutive ratios (it’s what the kids call it, live with it) of Musk is even funnier given the fact that he “has nearly 100 million Twitter followers, while Hard Drive has under 250,000.”

If Musk is going to buy Twitter, he should at least be good at it.
