Elon Musk is not so low-key trying to become a an actual villain from a James Bond movie, because he’s now mass producing flamethrowers.
The Tesla Motors CEO had been teasing fans claiming he would be selling 20,000 flamethrowers under his whacky side company, Boring. Saturday night he debuted the weapon, which he claims are legal under ATF specifications for having a flame shorter than ten feet.
The flamethrowers are hailed as “The World’s Safest” and are currently on pre-order for $600. Musk claims they’re “great for roasting nuts.”
He’s also brushing off rumors that the flamethrowers are being produced in anticipation of him genetically creating a zombie horde to battle in an apocalyptic war between mankind and the undead … but you may want to arm up just in case.
Also kind of ironic that his flamethrowers run on more fuel than his cars.
You’d need millions of zombies for a so-called “apocalypse” anyway. Where would I even get a factory big enough to make so many!?
