Elon Musk turns Tesla’s troubles into April Fools’ joke — but flamethrowers are real

Between Model S recalls and Model 3 production snags, Tesla has been having a tough time recently — but not as onerous as CEO Elon Musk made them out to be right now in a hilarious sequence of April Fools’ tweets:

Tesla Goes Bankrupt
Palo Alto, California, April 1, 2018 — Regardless of intense efforts to boost cash, together with a last-ditch mass sale of Easter Eggs, we are unhappy to report that Tesla has gone utterly and completely bankrupt. So bankrupt, you’ll be able to’t consider it.

There are many chapters of chapter and, as critics so rightly identified, Tesla has them *all*, together with Chapter 14 and a half (the worst one).

Elon was discovered handed out in opposition to a Tesla Mannequin 3, surrounded by “Teslaquilla” bottles, the tracks of dried tears nonetheless seen on his cheeks.

This isn’t a forward-looking assertion, as a result of, clearly, what is the level?

As you’ll be able to think about, a lot of Musk’s 20.8 million Twitter followers had been delighted by his self-deprecating gibes, and Teslaquilla may well turn into a real product.

It’s not clear what impact Musk’s lightheartedness may have on Tesla’s troubles, but Musk’s tweetstream appears to resolve a special query.

At present supplied the proper alternative to admit that his campaigns to promote Lego-like bricks and flamethrowers by way of the Boring Firm had been merely prolonged April Idiot’s pranks. The dearth of such a confession means that the 20,000 purchasers of the merchandise now rebranded as “not a flamethrower” can look ahead to deliveries within the weeks forward.
