Elon Musk fights Jeff Bezos in the latest Taiwanese Animators cartoon

The petty feud reaches ludicrous speed

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.""Bezos just wants to send rich douches on vacation."

The Taiwanese Animators' video avoids technical comparisons, and focuses on the more... metaphorical side of the feud. (Penises.) Also, there's a shot of Musk standing on a Tesla Model S racing Bezos standing on an Amazon delivery drone. I'll stop there, because you should just watch it. In the spirit of this month, I wouldn't want to spoil it any further.
