Elon Musk Would Like To Sell You A Flamethrower

Share

At the time, Musk promised on Twitter that if the company sold 50,000, it would start selling flamethrowers. And sure enough, only a day after announcing pre-orders, they'd already had sold 7,000 of the things, easily cruising toward the $4 million sales mark.

In addition to the flamethrower, a Boring Company fire extinguisher can be added on to the pre-order for $30 more.

The Boring Company chose to start selling flamethrower weapons over the weekend, and they appear to have become an aspiring supervillain's newest shop.

It is said that the posting by Wallach was taken at a Boring Co. tunneling site and it showcased him having fun playing about with the flamethrower.

There are no federal laws on owning a flamethrower, and so far only California and Maryland have bothered to sit down and ban them.

Our other guess is that Elon Musk is aware of an impending zombie apocalypse, and is simply arming the masses ahead of time. And sell out they did, because here we are.

Shipping is expected to start in spring but The Boring Company gave us a foretaste of what to expect with a demo video.

So, it looks like Elon Musk is selling flamethrowers to the general public and, yeah, let's all buy one.

For the low-low price of $500, you can terrorise your enemies and wow your friends. "You can definitely buy one for less elsewhere, but this one comes with a cool sticker and the button is conveniently riiight above", says the product website.

Earlier this week, a subredditor managed to guess the original password - "flame" - and got access to the page that mimics the Boring Company logo. The Ohio-based company Ion Productions launched an Indiegogo campaign in support of its XM42 flamethrower in 2015.

Later, the Boring Company founder qualified claims, tweeting "The rumor that I'm secretly creating a zombie apocalypse to generate demand for flamethrowers is completely false", and "You'd need millions of zombies for a so-called "apocalypse" anyway".
