Elon Musk wants you to blow the whistle on Tesla
- Elon Musk promotes Tesla’s Cyberwhistle via a hilarious tweet.
- The $50 whistle is inspired by the Cybertruck.
- It is made from medical grade stainless steel with a polished finish.
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, is back in the news again, this time with an apparent joke about whistle-blowers. He promoted the latest Tesla merchandise, the “Cyberwhistle,” with a tweet to his followers.
Musk’s tweet read “Blow the whistle on Tesla!” and provided a link to the $50 (Rs. 3,741). Unfortunately, the product appears to be out of stock on Tesla’s website. The website description states it is a limited-edition product and a premium collectible, inspired by the Cybertruck. Made from medical-grade stainless steel, with a polished finish, this whistle has an integrated attachment feature, which increases versatility.
While no confirmation on the integrated attachment exists, speculation points at a lanyard hole, allowing users to wear this whistle around their neck. Further, Tesla aficionados will realize that the Cyberwhistle is shaped like the Cybertruck, the electric pickup truck Musk announced two years back, in November 2019. Though it was supposed to go into production in late 2021, Tesla has pushed the dates to sometime in 2022.
Notably, Tesla’s new whistle is listed under their lifestyle products, that includes various items like the Tesla decanter, which costs $150, a desktop charger modelled after Tesla’s supercharger, costing $45, a S3XY mug to the tune of $35, and several die-cast models of Tesla vehicles.
Meanwhile, Musk continued joking on the thread saying, “Don't waste your money on that silly Apple Cloth, buy our whistle instead!" Of course, he is referring to the $19 (Rs. 1,421) microfiber polishing cloth from the iPhone makers. This is not the first time he has poked fun at Apple either. Musk replied to Apple CEO Tim Cook in October, when he announced the new Apple store launch in Istanbul, Turkey. He urged everyone to go and see the Apple cloth.
