The recent news on the Elon Musk Cyberpunk Cameo may not be surprising to some. Here is a man with more money than sense who likes to push boundaries on what is acceptable. But when you’re one of the richest people on the planet, you may think you can do what you want, when you want.

And it seems that when the mother of his children, Grimes, was in the studio for her voice recording for Cyberpunk 2077, the billionaire took it upon himself to crash the session, demanding a cameo in the most bizarre manner.

Just how far would one go to get a cameo in a video game? Make a few phone calls to the studio, or, given that you’re one of the wealthiest people in the world, use your name and influence to get an ‘in‘ with developers.

Well, it would seem that the news coming from Walter Isaacson, author of Musk’s memoir, claims that an Elon Musk Cyberpunk Cameo requires something a little more ‘extreme‘.

And what better way to announce that you want to feature in Cyberpunk 2077 than by rocking up to a studio with an antique flintlock pistol and demanding that you have a cameo in the game?

The use of force to get your likeness in a video game may be seen as over the top, but when you factor in that he brought a weapon to the studio to make his demands, you have to question the man’s sanity.

Fans of Cyberpunk 2077 were no doubt surprised to see the billionaire as part of the CD Projekt Red game and thought it would relate to his work in the tech world. Musk is also a self-confessed gamer, and many speculated that it could have been this that led to him being involved with the title.

But no, it was something far more bizarre. And for an Elon Musk Cyberpunk Cameo, all it takes is for the billionaire to appear with an antique gun and make demands. No big deal, right?

Well, going by Grimes’ account of the incident in Musk’s memoir,

“The studio guys were like sweating.”

It is no surprise when someone appears at your studio waving a gun. But Elon Musk himself assured the CDPR staff that he ‘was armed but not dangerous‘. We don’t know how reassuring that would have been for the poor staff who had a gun waving about in their faces.

When the studio relented, Musk advised him that he was interested in a cameo due to the cybernetic implants in the game being something similar to what he was working on at Neuralink. We’re sure that made everything alright then.

At the time of writing, we’ve not had any specific comment from CD Projekt Red about this matter.
