Elon Musk and The Boring Company Deliver its First Not a Flamethrower Flamethrowers

We have been keeping you up to date with the promotional shenanigans of Elon Musk. Last week, we told you about the Terms & Conditions consumers had to accept prior to placing an order for a Not a Flamethrower. This article follows some of those very consumers as they picked up the product. At $500 a pop, all 20,000 sold out within four days.

Elon Musk’s other brainchildren include The Boring Hat and life-sized Lego-like bricks.


Promo Products Abound at Philly Pride Parade

There were all kinds of businesses at the Philadelphia Pride Parade giving away branded products along the 1.3-mile walk. The theme was obviously rainbow, for the LGBTQIAPK+ community. Due to the rainy weather, the biggest hit was logoed ponchos. I would wager caps would have been a good call too.
