Tesla-Branded Tequila Anyone?
Back in April 2018, Elon Musk posted on his Twitter page a picture of himself passed out against a Tesla Model 3 with a message mentioning "Teslaquilla" bottles. It was just an April's Fools joke until a few days ago when the car brand started selling tequila on its online outlet.
Elon was found passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by "Teslaquilla" bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 1, 2018
This is not a forward-looking statement, because, obviously, what's the point?

Naturally, the launch attracted massive interest and bottles were all sold out not long after. Even though the brand anticipated the massive demand and placed a limit of two bottles per buyer, it didn't stop people from buying to resell on eBay. The tequilas are scheduled for delivery towards the end of the year, but people are already listing their merchandise for sale.
To get the lightning-shaped bottle, collectors will have to pay anything from US$500 to US$5000.
