Elon Musk has done the idea again.
He has everyone talking about him. This specific time the buzz is actually about flamethrowers.
Musk’s The Boring Company, which wants to create a network of underground tunnels to ease traffic congestion, is actually offering flamethrowers for sale on its website for a cool $500.
Musk said on Twitter early Sunday morning in which 2,000 flamethrowers have already been pre-ordered. the idea’s advertised as “guaranteed to liven up any party.”
Unsurprisingly, the internet has gone nuts.
The company said the idea plans to cap sales at 20,000 units, although declined to comment further.
Musk, the SpaceX in addition to Tesla founder known for provocative antics, plugged the brand-new product on social media on Saturday.
“When the zombie apocalypse happens, you’ll be glad you bought a flamethrower,” he tweeted. “Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!”
