Tesla-branded tequila ‘Teslaquila’ coming soon: Elon Musk
SAN FRANCISCO: An April Fool’s Day prank may soon see the light of day as billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has confirmed that a Tesla-branded tequila, called “Teslaquila”, is “coming soon”. Teslaquila first featured in an April Fool’s joke in which Musk, the CEO of Tesla, said on Twitter he had been found “passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by ‘Teslaquila’ bottles” as he joked about his electric car company going bankrupt. The tweet, it now turns out, was a teaser for Teslaquila, as according to a report in CNBC on Friday Tesla had filed an application with the US Patent and Trademark Office to trademark “Teslaquila”. The trademark is for “distilled agave liquor” and “distilled blue agave liquor”, the report said.
