Elon Musk's The Boring Company is set to generate a quick $10 million in revenue this week. How? By selling flamethrowers. Yes, flamethrowers. After selling $1 million worth of dad hats, The Boring Company ups the ante with their latest retail offering. For a mere $500 (excluding taxes and shipping), 20,000 units were made available for public pre-order this past Saturday. Having already sold 10,000 units in the first 48 hours, the flamethrowers are on pace to sell out within a matter of days. Musk believes we can "solve the problem of soul-destroying traffic" by expanding roads to a 3-D model by using potentially endless networks of underground tunnels. With plans for high-speed public and private transportation, The Boring Company could forever change the way --and speed-- we travel.
In the meantime, Musk suggests the flamethrowers are good for roasting nuts and fighting off zombies. He says the flamethrower is a "super terrible idea... unless you like fun." Offering a money-back guarantee if your flamethrower fails to protect you from "hoards of the undead," will you be picking one up?
