The real-life Tony Stark, Elon Musk has done it again and has become the talk of the town. But, this time the buzz is about the flamethrowers.
The man behind Tesla, PayPal, and SpaceX, Elon Musk on Saturday have announced yet another innovative product called the flamethrower which is a $500 product. Musk's announcements on Instagram and Twitter about the flamethrower have all been in a tongue-in-cheek tone. The entrepreneur said on Monday that The Boring Company had already sold 7,000 flamethrowers which mean the company has sold at least $3.5 million worth of its new trendy product.
The entire internet has gone nuts seeing Musk plugging the new product amazingly on the social media.
"When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower," Elon Musk tweeted. "Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!"
Elon Musk’s Los Angeles-based tunnel-digging venture, The Boring Company has got plans to sell 20,000 people a $500 flamethrower but there is a roadblock. The California Health and Safety Codes outlines that owning or selling flamethrowers is illegal without a permit granted by the state fire marshal. These flamethrowers are defined as a nonstationary and transportable device which is designed to emit a burning stream of combustible and flammable liquid to a distance of at least 10ft.
Sam Teller, the director of the offices of all three of Musk's companies said, “Since The Boring Company's flamethrower emits fire less than the defined 10 feet, we do not have to get a permit to sell.”
