Billionaire tech guru Elon Musk showed off pictures of the Boring Company’s first commercial flamethrowers being distributed to lines of buyers today — and joked that the device has been renamed “Not a Flamethrower” so as not to run afoul of customs or shipping regulations.
“First 1000 Boring Company Flamethrowers being picked up today!” Musk tweeted.
As shown in Musk’s tweeted pictures, hundreds lined up at the pickup site in Los Angeles to get their purchases and pose for pictures as flames licked out from the flamethrowers’ barrels.
Thousands more of the contraptions will be shipped out in the weeks ahead, Musk said. An initial offering of 20,000 flamethrowers, priced at $500 each, sold out within four days in January.
