ELON MUSK'S FLAMETHROWERS HIT eBAY WITH SKY-HIGH RESALE PRICES

Flame on! Elon Musk says Boring Company delivers its first ‘Not-a-Flamethrowers’ Elon Musk and the Boring Company Deliver its First 'Not a Flamethrower' Flamethrowers

That's around 40 times the original $500 (£374) price tag.

After Musk sold 20,000 of his company's flamethrowers, it was announced that The Boring Company would be holding special pick up parties for their excited customers, as ABC7 reports.

This weekend Elon Musk held a pickup party at Boring Company headquarters for his flamethrower, which for legal reasons is officially called "Not-a-Flamethrower".

'For simple & concise instructions, we drew upon wisdom in great Dr Seuss book "Green Eggs and Ham"'. "I will not use this in a house".

OK, so calling it a "Not a Flamethrower" may not be the most poetic way to refer to the $500 flame-throwing device - the Boring Co. took 20,000 pre-orders - but Musk isn't the most conventional of chief executives.

Instead, the Boring Company torch guns function like large propane blowtorches.

Musk swiftly proposed his solution of a name change to circumvent quarrels. Don't worry if you can't make it; all Not-a-Flamethrowers will ship out this summer! "Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!"

What started as an online gag has turned into a marketing ploy worth millions - with the first 1,000 customers receiving the flamethrower - that promotes the Boring Co., Musk's endeavor to build underground transportation tunnels. If TBC actually does plan to offer an ice blaster and expects it to be usefulwhen the "winter dry season" begins, the news should come soon.

The disclaimer also mandated that consumers check off several boxes under the prompt, "I understand The Boring Company isn't responsible for anything I do, no matter how genius or stupid".

'Flamethrower obv best way to light your fireplace/BBQ, ' Musk tweeted. The tech billionaire shared pictures of distributing his most popular (and most controversial to date) fundraising technique for the Boring Company today via his Twitter. The electric sled would allow for cars to be transported at 150 miles per hour through the tunnel, Musk has said.
