Serial tech entrepreneur and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been the subject of much criticism over the last 6-months since joining President Trump’s Business Advisory Council. But this newly found criticism is actually hilarious. A website under the domain stoptesla.com rallies support to “Stop Elon Musk before it’s too late for us!”
The satirical videos poke fun at those protesting against Tesla’s mission to shift away from a fossil fuel burning economy.
“Greetings, oil product consumer. The time has come to make a decisive choice. Listen to your pumping heart, and let not our riches of your labor be lost to this Model 3!” – StopTesla.com
The site proclaims that Tesla’s upcoming Model 3 will unleash dangers towards international fossil fuel corporations, describing the vehicle as, “the infamous fast, long-range, environment-friendly and offensively affordable fully electric auto-piloted car from Musk.”
This campaign, evidently an entry into Tesla’s Project Loveday contest, comes just months after VC Doug Derwin launched a $1M campaign to convince billionaire Elon Musk to distance himself from Trump.
The StopTesla campaign provides a hilarious view on the fate of fossil-fuel companies, as companies worldwide continue to take notice of the impending shift towards renewables spearheaded by a growing electric-car market. Recently, Shell has announced intentions to build out a network of DC chargers starting in the UK. While there is still a significant amount of work needed to bring electric vehicles and renewable energy to the masses, it’s nice to see a fun take on the push-back from the fossil fuel industry.
“Let’s all reunite and stop the future from happening while we still can!” – StopTesla’s tagline
