About the Boring Company
The Boring Co. is a tunnel construction company founded by Elon Musk in 2016. In 2018, the company began to engage in a number of marketing promotions and offered several types of promotional merchandise to consumers. To date, these have included hats, bricks, fire extinguishers, and “flamethrowers”. The Boring Company’s “flamethrower” was a blow torch shaped to look like a gun. The sale of the “flamethrower” attracted criticism from politicians and soon after some customs officials said would no allow any items called “flamethrowers”. Elon Musk later announced on Twitter that he would rename them to “Not-A-Flamethrower”. The “Not-A-Flamethrower” is no longer for sale.
