Musk Delivers 1,000 “Not a Flamethrower” Units: 20,000 Sold at $500 Each

It turns out, Elon Musk's flamethrower idea was not a joke as Musk’s Boring Co. delivers first 1,000 flamethrowers to customers.

Six months after Elon Musk raised the eyebrows of sane people everywhere by announcing his Boring Co. would sell flamethrowers for $500 a pop, the first 1,000 deliveries were made Saturday for customers who showed up at the company’s headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif.

The flamethrowers went like, well, flaming hotcakes when they went on sale in late January, selling out in just four days. In all, 20,000 were sold, raising about $10 million in revenue for Musk’s tunnel-boring startup. The devices, technically called “Not a Flamethrower” to skirt federal shipping regulations, shoot a two-foot flame.

Despite concerns about the wisdom of allowing personal flamethrowers in wildfire-prone California, state legislators last month shelved legislation that would have required them to come with a safety warning.

I will not use this in a house

I will not point this at my spouse

If only Musk could deliver a car with autopilot and brakes that worked.

Publicity Stunt

Let's recognize this adventure for what it really is: A publicity stunt. It's also a waste of time and energy given numerous real problems at Tesla.

Oh, and disclaimer or not, it is also the start of numerous legal liabilities for Tesla, at a time when the last thing Musk needs is even more distractions.
