Elon Musk's Boring Company puts first 1000 Flamethrowers in buyers' hands

The 2020 Tesla Roadster with the SpaceX option package won't see light before 2019, so we'll have to wait longer to see if Musk really meant it when he promised rocket thrusters. "For simple & concise instructions, we drew upon wisdom in great Dr Seuss book "Green Eggs and Ham".

What started as an online gag has turned into a marketing ploy worth millions - with the first 1,000 customers receiving the flamethrower - that promotes the Boring Co., Musk's endeavor to build underground transportation tunnels.

Ahead of the original launch of the gun, he said: 'When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower. "I will not use this in a house".

'Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!'

"In a ideal world, I don't see any reason why anybody needs something like this out of a legitimate commercial use".

The best use is creme brulee.

The hot ticket items also come with a 10-page manual including other sensible tips such as not pointing the Not-A-Flamethrower at your face, people, animals, or flammable objects, and not to touch the nozzle during or after use.

Some customers are already trying to turn a profit on the device.

"Obviously, a flamethrower is a super bad idea". The most eager customers can forgo the bidding process and pay the eBay "buy it now price", which is as high as $20,000. He has advertised the flamethrowers as "guaranteed to liven up any party", drawing a huge reaction online.

As of Monday morning, multiple eBay listings show the device for anywhere between $2,250 and $5,000. The Boring Co.is based in Southern California, a region ravaged by wildfires.

But The Boring Company had an even bigger surprise for their customers, and this was to hold a special flamethrower pick up party on June 9 in Los Angeles so that the first thousand flamethrowers could be personally distributed, something that has gone down as a treat with buyers.
