Elon Musk’s Flamethrowers: The Boring Company

Want to hear Elon Musk speak about it, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO’s venture into flamethrowers was not flameout — he exchanged all 20,000 of the $500 units in just five days.

Coming up with the news on Twitter on Thursday morning, Elon Musk stated the flamethrowers showing the logo of his very Boring Company tunneling and infrastructure investment would direct with a gratis fire extinguisher.

The sellout would roughly design $10 million in purchases of the devices.

The tech administrator made good on his proposal to market flamethrowers over the weekend after customers are snapping up 50,000 Boring Company hats.

Sales came up precisely briskly from the very start, Musk indicated via Twitter. By 29th January alone, he announced his company had called up $3.5 million in flamethrower deals. Buyers may have been triggered enough by an Instagram video that showed Musk handling one of the units and rushing toward the viewer.

Though, not everybody was impressed.

Byars suggested to the media that Musk must buy his business, an approach that obviously failed to catch burning with the tech entrepreneur.

Elon Musk got all the hotness from California Assemblyman Miguel Santiago, a Los Angeles Dixiecrat who once stated to him he will anyway introduce legislation to block sales of Boring Company flamethrowers in his state.

“This subject matter, in the wake of the state’s deadliest wildfires in history, is incredibly insensitive, dangerous, and most definitely not funny,” Santiago said in an email to The Washington Post. “Absolutely no public good could come from the sale of this tool.”

Chris Byars, Arizona businessman said the flamethrowers betrayed by his Ion Productions Team company were significant and immeasurable than Musks. Ion’s units have a reach of up to 30 feet, he said.

“His entire unit is basically the starter torch for ours,” stated Chris Byars, whose latest flamethrowers have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $1,099 and a sale price of $899.
