In a 2017 interview with Shane Powers, Tyler casually mentioned that he sometimes hangs out with Elon Musk and talks about cars. "He's really cool," Tyler said. "He just loves the design aesthetic of McLaren and how sleek and cool it was." Despite his relationship with the SpaceX founder, Tyler was hesitant about ever wanting to visit Mars, though. He explained, "There's nothing on Mars. There's no air. There's no food. I don't know if I can listen to music yet." Shane pushed and Tyler eventually admitted he would go after they figured things out in the early trips: "I'll go on trip nine or twelve."
