SNL spoofs Jeff Bezos, Blue Origin and space billionaires with ‘Star Trek’ skit

The billionaire space race landed on late-night TV Saturday (Oct. 2), featuring a spoof on Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos, Virgin Galactic and “Star Trek,” with a guest appearance from a fake Elon Musk of SpaceX.

Owen Wilson stars in the raunchy “Saturday Night Life” skit as a cowboy-hatted Bezos, a nod to the Blue Origin founder’s fashion decision before blasting off on his company’s first crewed suborbital flight July 20. There are plenty of Amazon jokes, too, in reference to the company where Bezos made his billionaire riches. (Families with young kids will probably want to screen this skit first, due to its content.)
