Following an initial leak of The Boring Company’s flamethrower, which was promised to consumers by Elon Musk once the company sold 50,000 caps, the actual product itself has hit The Boring Company’s website.
Priced now at $500 instead of the $600 initially reported, Musk himself took to Instagram to show off the flamethrower in action. It appears to be modeled after the CSI S.T.A.R. XR-5 Airsoft Rifle and features a top mounted gas tank, while Musk’s company is also selling a branded fire extinguisher for an additional $30.
Just like the videos posted to Instagram, the product descriptions themselves are tinged with humor, like the following information surrounding the fire extinguisher:
“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.”
Even the terms and conditions include a few signature Musk quips:
“-Fire extinguisher sold separately (for exorbitant amounts of money)
-Taxes and shipping will be added at checkout
-Additional customs fees may apply for international orders because of laws
-International customers can receive a full refund if not happy with said fees
-Before shipping, aspiring flamethrower aficionados will be sent a terms and conditions rhyme for review and acceptance
-Starts shipping in spring
-May not be used on Boring Company decorative lacquered hay bales or Boring Company dockside munitions warehouses”
Pre-orders appear to be going well, with Musk tweeting that 1,000 have been sold already and only 19,000 more are in stock:
And just hours later tweeting that 2,000 had been sold:
He also of course took the opportunity to play up the classic zombie apocalypse scenario:
Musk even threw in some jabs at himself and his ideas:
But if you’d like to be prepared just in case, you can pre-order both the flamethrower and fire extinguisher here.
