Tesla billionaire Elon Musk's new invention — a flamethrower — is stirring up a firestorm while selling like hot cakes.
Musk's company, The Boring Co., has already sold 15,000 in pre-orders, according to his personal Twitter account.
At $500 each, the flamethrowers will be shipped in the spring.
The visionary behind the Tesla electric car and the Space-X rockets even appears in an Instagram video promoting the flamethrowers.
The idea of selling one to the general public seems so off-the-wall that many have been wondering whether it's all an elaborate joke.
Skepticism was also raised after Musk tweeted out comments like: "When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower. Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!"
Other head-scratching tweets have been met with suspicion.
