Elon Musk’s flamethrower is selling like hotcakes
31 January 2018
Through Elon Musk’s Boring Company, customers can now buy a flamethrower that, according the website, will guarantee to liven up any party…
From electric cars, to space exploration, energy projects and tunnel adventures, Elon Musk has gone one step further and introduced his own flamethrower.
Priced at $500, The Boring Company has already sold £2.5m worth of the product in less than 24hours, according to The Guardian.
This announcement has sparked heated debate on the legality and safety of selling the product online, yet, it didn’t stop the 7,000 order that came in just hours after its release.
Musk took to social media to say “I want to be clear that a flamethrower is a super terrible idea. Definitely don’t buy one. Unless you like fun”.
