Flamethrowers: Has Elon Musk lost his mind?

MAVERICK businessman Elon Musk has launched an incredible new venture which has earned him more than $4.3 million in 24 hours.

Last week, he pledged that if The Boring Company sold 50,000 baseball caps at $25 each he would start selling flamethrowers.

The multi-billionaire founder of electric car company Tesla and tunnelling company Boring started selling the $US500 flamethrowers on Sunday, tweeting: "Guaranteed to liven up any party!"

In a video post on Instagram, Musk said "don't do this" and then proceeded to run towards the camera with the flamethrower alight. "Also, I want to be clear that a flamethrower is a super terrible idea. Definitely don't buy one. Unless you like fun."

Anyone fancy a go?
