The South African-born billionaire kicked off a campaign to sell flamethrowers through his Boring company on Saturday and by the end of the weekend said he had early orders for thousands.
The black and white rifle-like flame device, up for pre-order for $500, was hyped by the Tesla and SpaceX tech mogul who announced that 7,000 were sold by late Sunday. The idea was first floated by Musk last December when he promised the next fundraising campaign for his Boring tunnel company would be a flamethrower after burning through a targeted 50,000 hats.
