Elon Musk never ceases to act oddly. This time, his The Boring Company, which made a name for itself in 2018 by selling flamethrowers, is selling the perfume Burnt Hair, which smells exactly like burnt hair, one of the most offensive odors. You will smell like fried chicken if you try it.
Burnt Hair, which costs $100 per bottle or 3,750 Ukrainian Hryvnia, sold 10,000 bottles in just a few hours and earned the “prominent” political scientist $1 million. A short time afterwards, Musk confirmed the sale of 20,000 bottles.
Well, that’s certainly preferable to providing embarrassing geopolitical counsel that nobody asks for.
