Elon Musk wants it known that Apple doesn’t have the market cornered on overpriced accessories.
The Tesla CEO urged his Twitter followers to buy the $50 stainless-steel Cyberwhistle shaped like the company’s upcoming Cybertruck electric pickup. He referenced the $19 Polishing Cloth that Apple released this fall.
“Blow the whistle on Tesla!” Musk tweeted last week. “Don’t waste your money on that silly Apple Cloth, buy our whistle instead!”
Within hours, Tesla’s website said the whistle was out of stock.
“Inspired by Cybertruck, the limited-edition Cyberwhistle is a premium collectible made from medical-grade stainless steel with a polished finish,” the site explains. “The whistle includes an integrated attachment feature for added versatility.”
But if buyers later decide it’s not quite versatile enough for their medical-grade whistling needs, they’re out of luck. Tesla warns that it won’t accept returns for any reason.
