Elon Musk declined to dance after SpaceX’s Crew Dragon aced a safety test on Sunday , but said he will do a special performance when it launches. Reporters at a press conference pleaded with Musk, but the SpaceX and Tesla founder said he had to “work on my skills.” Musk then joked he wasn’t a “dancing puppet,” but added “I tell you what, after Crew launch, 100%.” A video of Musk “dad-dancing” in Shanghai in early January sent the internet into meltdown.

In a video posted to Twitter on Sunday by Reuters space reporter Joey Roulette, Musk responded to a question from USA Today space reporter Rachel Joy about whether he would dance to celebrate Sunday’s successful safety test of Crew Dragon . Amid wild cheers for a performance, Musk said he felt like he’s “not that good of a dancer” which was countered by calls of “You are!” from reporters. “I’m not your dancing puppet,” Musk joked, adding he felt he needed to “work on” his “skills.” Musk did quick gaggle after the press conference and at one point basically the whole space press corps demanded he do a celebratory dance.
