Elon Musk is selling flamethrowers to raise capital for The Boring Company

Is Elon Musk Now Selling $600 Flamethrowers

Musk's The Boring Company, which wants to create a network of underground tunnels to ease traffic congestion, is offering flamethrowers for sale on its website for a cool $500, advertised as "guaranteed to liven up any party". Back then, he had tweeted that if The Boring Company (his tunnel and infrastructure digging effort) sells 50,000 hats bearing the company's name, his company would start manufacturing state-of-the-art flamethrowers. The Boring Company's mission is to excavate a low-priced but fast-digging tunnel through Los Angeles to help alleviate its notorious auto traffic.

They even sell a Boring Company fire extinguisher, an invaluable tool for any sucker who plays with a flamethrower without knowing how to use it. In the movie, there's a scene about the importance of merchandising, and a flamethrower is mentioned.

Musk founded the Boring Company past year after getting annoyed by traffic around LA.




Like Musk's joke about sending his Roadster to space, as well as his lofty visions and statements that may or may not ever come true, people thought this was just silly fun. But that's a small price to pay for your own fully functional flamethrower. And at least one user was able to guess the original password, too: "flame". Don't bother trying that password anymore, because it's since been changed. The flamethrower, if this web page is to be believed, will go for $600.

The listing states that the flamethrower pictured is a prototype the firm's toying with - matching up with an image American musician D. A. Wallach shared on social media earlier this month - and that the "final production flamethrower will be better". However, now it seems to be working without a password, and the flamethrower is actually $500.00. The Boring Company says shipping of the flamethrowers will kick off in the spring (Northern Hemisphere).
