An initial offering of 20,000 flamethrowers, priced at $500 each, sold out within four days in January.

The firm plans to build a network of tunnels where vehicles are transported on electric skates to their destination, reducing traffic on the surface.

While the merchandise certainly helps draw attention to Musk's boring ambitions and the holes he's drilling into Los Angeles streets, they're not how he's subsidizing most of the projects.

Musk tweeted photographs of excited fans shooting flames from their new toy.

The fire-breathing device comes packaged with a rhyming set of terms and conditions that nods to the classic Dr. Seuss book "Green Eggs and Ham".

In an unsurprising, yet unfortunate turn of events, Musk was blocked from shipping the Boring Company Flamethrower in February when customs agencies point blank refused to deliver a device with such a volatile name.

Elon Musk reportedly has a net worth over $20 billion. Instead, they work more like large propane blowtorches.

Musk said the device was renamed Not-a-Flamethrower, "due to recent regulatory/customs rules enacted to inhibit transport of anything called a Flamethrower".

Ahead of the original launch of the gun, he said: 'When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower.

The Boring Company's $500 flamethrower gets a demonstration.

'Will offer a TBC ice blaster before the dry season starts in winter, ' Musk tweeted.

The disclaimer also mandated that consumers check off several boxes under the prompt, "I understand The Boring Company isn't responsible for anything I do, no matter how genius or stupid".

But The Boring Company had an even bigger surprise for their customers, and this was to hold a special flamethrower pick up party on June 9 in Los Angeles so that the first thousand flamethrowers could be personally distributed, something that has gone down as a treat with buyers.
