Boring Company Flamethrower

The Boring Company quickly sold 20,000 flamethrowers. It is likely the most rapid pace for flamethrower sales in history. The flamethrowers came as a surprise with CEO Elon Musk introduced them using Instagram.

Musk demonstrated the flamethrower and wrote, "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."

The flamethrowers were sold for $500 each and shipped with a complimentary fire extinguisher. The order page now says "Flamethrower sales are now complete." The only other product the company sells is a hat. The company was originally created with the concept of creating a huge underground transportation system. CNN reports that the flamethrower sales will be used to help fund the company.

Here's Elon Musk with a flamethrower. He seems to be enjoying himself immensely:
