After teasing it for some time, Elon Musk finally unveiled a flamethrower that his company—The Boring Company—is now selling. Yes, you can buy a real, working flamethrower.
The Boring Company Flamethrower Is Available for Pre-Order
Check out Musk demoing the thrower and then head on past the break for more info.
If you need a flamethrower in your life—for some reason—you’ll be happy to know that Musk’s company is currently open to pre-orders. The rather cool, yet eccentric looking Boring Company flamethrower will set you back about $500. You can also order a fire extinguisher along with it, which is certainly recommended. The extinguisher will cost you another $30, which is admittedly high for comparable products. Though The Boring Co. does claim their extinguisher has a nifty decal on it.
I am disappointed the flamethrower wasn’t given a worthy name like the Flame Theory or some such nonsense.
It is actually functional. We’re not talking about a flamethrower or fake gun made to look like the real thing. For that reason, you likely don’t want to be shooting this bad boy off inside your home, or near dry, dead grass and underbrush.
If you want one, you’ll need to know taxes and shipping costs are added at checkout. That’s important, I guess. You will also have to accept some mysterious terms and conditions, which probably exonerate Musk and his crew’s from any of your flame-thirsty shenanigans. You burn your arms or legs to a crisp, that’s on you bud.
Clearly, the team spared no expense on the marketing copy because look at this:
“Buy an overpriced Boring Company fire extinguisher! You can definitely buy one for less elsewhere, but this one comes with a cool sticker and the button is conveniently riiight above.”
Now that’s out of the bag, let’s get to the real question. Who out there is buying one, and can I come visit when it arrives?
