In December, Elon Musk’s Boring Company, which is looking to solve traffic issues via a series of underground transportation tunnels, launched a fairly plain baseball cap. Then Elon Musk made a promised on Twitter that “after we sell 50k [Boring Company] hats, we will start selling The Boring Company flamethrower.” This past Christmas Eve, after hitting the sales goal, he tweeted that the flamethrowers were coming “soon!”
Real life Tony Stark and SpaceX, Tesla, and Boring Company CEO Elon Musk is known for making bold promises. After weeks of teases, Musk has confirmed that The Boring Company is selling… a flamethrower. Redditors discovered earlier last week that the URL “boringcompany.com/flamethrower” started redirecting to a page with a password box. And at least one user was able to guess the original password, too: “flame.” (It’s since been changed.)
There are 20,000 Boring Flamethrowers on sale. And yes, these should be legal. Musk said the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms allows throwers with flames shorter than 10 feet, which looks to be the case here.
To celebrate the release of the Boring Company Flamethrower, Elon Musk recently took to Instagram to show off how to use them. In one clip Musk is seen firing a flamethrower up and playfully running at the cameraman. While the other clip of two employees trying the flamethrower is captioned, “great for roasting nuts.”
The Boring Flamethrower is available for pre-order now for $500. Additionally, The Boring Company wants fans to use its flamethrowers safely which is why they are also selling a branded fire extinguisher that comes with a “cool sticker.”
