Musk continues to explain a scene in the movie where Sacha Baron Cohen, playing the character Aladeen, a brutal dictator. A team of researchers is building Aladeen nuclear weapons, and when shown what the researchers have built, Aladeen says that the missile "needs to be pointy".

"You literally told them to make the Starship more pointy because of the movie The Dictator?" said, Rogan.
"Yep, and they know it too, it's not like they are unaware of it. Everyone would thought it would be funny if they made the rocket more pointy, so we did." said Musk.
