"Celebrate summer with Tesla Short Shorts", can be read on the Tesla website where the product description is published, with an image accompanying the promotion of short red pants, which the brand says are ideal for running and resting in pool. They are a limited edition, with the Tesla logo on the front and the word S3XY written on the back.
The idea is for Tesla to join the fashion industry, but it all seems to come out of Elon Musk's creative mind once more, who this time is playing with "shorts", people who buy and sell small batches of Tesla expects a drop in price so they can buy cheaper and thus make a bigger profit. This type of behavior is seen as negative, mainly because these people often criticize brands to get stocks to fall.
Elon Musk has often reiterated his comments against this behavior and also against the SEC – Securities and Exchange Commission, the agency that controls the stock market in the United States, which he believes to be complicit in this type of behavior.
The whole idea of "shorts" revolves around the same joke as you can see in the post that Elon Musk published this weekend.
Even the price is a joke: it costs 69,420 dollars, in a link to the idea of making Tesla private for 420 dollars a year, which led to a SEC lawsuit and a temporary ban on posting tweets.
Elon Musk, the irreverent owner of Tesla and SpaceX has launched several innovative products in the auto segment and space exploration, but he has also put into practice other ideas that seem bizarre, like building a tunnel under Los Angeles. One of the most recent singularities was the name that Elon Musk and his girlfriend Grimes gave to their first son, X A-12, which generated a movement of "elonification" of names in which SAPO TEK also participated.
On the list of weird products is a flame wool that went on sale in 2018 and sold out in a few hours.
