Twitter boss Elon Musk and New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s war of tweets never fails to grab headlines. The Congresswoman and the billionaire are known for their differences and always seem to be at loggerheads over the latter’s policies. However, a video has surfaced on the social media platform in which the two are seen putting aside their differences and looking into each other’s eyes, indicating their romantic chemistry. Social media users were initially taken aback by the sudden development, but later found out that the video was fake.
Clips of the US senator and Twitter’s new owner were put together on Twitter in a heavily-edited parody video that has gone viral. Maze, a digital artist, shared the video on the microblogging site on Wednesday, November 23, with the caption, “These two have insane chemistry.”

The video depicts Tesla CEO and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (often referred to as AOC) hashing out their differences. The clip pastes two separate interviews of Ocasio-Cortez and Mr Musk to make it look like they are talking and sharing an intimate moment.
Here’s how the conversation goes:
The video begins with Ms. Ocasio-Cortez simply saying, “I’m sorry.” “Nobody’s perfect,” replied Mr. Musk. “I’m breaking all the rules. I’m breaking all the rules,” she adds, laughing. “I guess, we might make some mistakes. Who knows?” Mr Musk added. Meanwhile, they share an awkward silence, looking into each other’s eyes. “I think one of the biggest problems we have in D.C. is that everyone has huge egos,” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez-Cortez giggles. “I really prefer not to have a title,” Mr Musk replies. “You’re opening yourself up,” the Congressman says. The billionaire replies, “I’m just me.”
While the AOC’s footage was taken from a “60 Minutes” interview conducted with CBS’ Anderson Cooper in 2019, the Musk clip was edited from a December 2018 interview the Tesla boss gave to “60 Minutes” correspondent Leslie Stahl was, according to New York Post.
The hilarious video also caught the eye of a Twitter owner. Elon Musk gave his approval to the fake video by tweeting an emoji depicting a heart made of two hands.

A few days ago, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez and Mr. Musk had a spat over the reinstatement of former President Donald Trump on Twitter. AOC responded to Elon Musk’s poll to restore Mr Trump’s Twitter, saying that “the last time he was here this platform was used to incite an insurrection.” Earlier, the two clashed over Twitter’s new blue tick policy.
