Elon Musk. The man. The Legend. If you don’t know who he is, we’re not going to even fill you in. Just Google him and realize how many world-changing companies he started and you’ll feel about him just like we do.
Now, for those of you who do know him or at least something about him, you know his personality. He’s kind of a goofball which but at the same time incredibly brilliant, so seeing him having fun with a flamethrower on Instagram probably wouldn’t surprise you.
Here’s how this came to be.
One of Elon’s ventures, called Boring Company, is an “infrastructure and tunnel construction company” which aims to redefine the way we travel. To raise money, they first sold hats and selling 50,000, they moved on to flamethrowers. Sounds reasonable, right?
Well, just over the first two days the company sold 10,000 of them, raising $5 million. They aim for 10,000 more which should happen really soon.
