What do you get when you combine Tesla with tequila? Teslaquila (no, really).
Starting off as an April Fool’s joke back in 2018, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, joked on Twitter about filing for bankruptcy. Musk tweeted that he had been found “passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by ‘Teslaquila’ bottles”, holding a sign stating “Bankwupt!”
A nice joke, for sure. But, fast forward a couple of years and Teslaquila is now a real product available on the Tesla website in the US! Shaped in a slick glass electric charge symbol, the “small-batch premium 100% de agave tequila añejo” costs $250 per 750ml – premium pricing for a premium brand.
The surprise product sold out just days after launch. If this has taught us anything, it’s that we should always take Elon Musk seriously!
