Elon Musk has a new flamethrower product that he only wants people who “like to have fun” to buy. However, those people will also need to be willing to fork over some serious cash for the new product because it is not cheap.
Musk’s Boring Company is now officially selling flamethrowers. He used social media to debut the new product over the weekend. The businessman posted a few different videos and pictures to get his followers excited about the product.
“Don’t do this. Also, I want to be clear that a flamethrower is a super terrible idea. Definitely don’t buy one. Unless you like fun,” He wrote in an Instagram video post of himself using the new product.
These flamethrowers are being advertised as “guaranteed to liven up any party." Those buying into the advertisement will have to spend $500 to see if the product really does liven up a party. It can be preordered via the company’s website, via boringcompany.com. Boring Company is also marketing it as the safest flamethrower out there.

The Internet is already going crazy over these flamethrowers! Musk Tweeted out a message on Sunday morning revealing over 2,000 preorders have already come in. According to CNN, Boring Company plans on capping the sale of the product at 20,000 but would not confirm why they were only selling that amount.
It would seem that the flamethrowers are the latest product to help Boring Company raise funds for its tunneling operations in the greater Los Angeles area. Musk has gone on record saying if more underground tunnels are built, it will solve the city’s traffic problem. He wasn’t all talk either. In December, he posted a picture of his tunnel-digging machine on social media. It is as though he is hoping he can make subways cool again in LA.
Elon Musk is known for being a great businessman with some rather far out there ideas. Remember, he freaked out most of the Los Angeles with his ongoing plans to colonize Mars. However, he has had some amazing ideas, such as when he helped develop Paypal for online currency.
