Elon Musk is going all George Clooney/Rande Gerber … at least it seems that way because he appears to be serious about getting into the tequila game.
Musk has filed legal docs to develop a Tesla-brand tequila. This started as an April Fools joke … where he tweeted Tesla had gone bankrupt and “Elon was found passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by Teslaquilla bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks.”
Well it appears it wasn’t a joke, because Elon filed docs saying his company intended to manufacture the booze, ID’ing it as “distilled agave liquor.”
He even tweeted a mock photo of the bottle, adding, “Teslaquila coming soon.”
The reason this is no joke … filing trademark applications with the federal governments must legally be done in good faith. The Feds don’t appreciate practical jokes … and there can be legal consequences.
