Wednesday's "Daily Show" featured John Oliver tearing apart two billionaires of the tech world unveiling new ideas under shaky pretenses. While Jeff Bezos' acquisition of The Washington Post has left most observers cautiously optimistic, Elon Musk's explanation of his concept for a new transportation, Hyperloop, was rife for satire.

Check out Oliver's takedown of Musk, and how you can't just describe your idea as "a cross between an air gun, a concord and an air hockey table" without actually having a plan to bring your super-fast train to fruition. Because it will probably just end up as a Sharknado.
