Do you strive to be successful? Do you plan on reinventing the world and moving society as a whole into the future? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then I have the product that is right for you. Instantly change the aroma of your (preferably all electric and made by Tesla) car to smell like one of the most innovative men of modern times. If you want to be successful, you need to smell successful; or at least your car does.
This may seem like some bizarre or gimmicky novelty that a few guys decided to make in order to cash in on the Elan Musk name, but I will give credit when credit is deserved.
My first reaction when I saw this was “Who would buy this?” thinking that the Elan Musk fan club can’t be that big or that it even exists. Turns out, there is a fan club but the support is in the thousands. I could only go as far as my investigative journalism skills could take me and concluded that there are roughly 9,000 fans from Facebook, Google+, and Reddit combined.
I decided to get an estimate on how much it cost to make a car air freshener. There is a site that you can buy a custom car air freshener for 29 cents. One Elan’s Musk air freshener sells for $6.90. I don’t want to assume that they order their air fresheners from the site, but basic math tells me they are making at least a $5 profit on each one they sell depending on the shipping cost. If they sold just one to half of the people in the fan club, they would be profiting about $22,500. The possibilities are endless though. They could even pair up with the man himself and manage to offer the quality air fresheners in the new Teslas.
So what exactly does Elan’s Musk smell like? The FAQ page of their site sheds some light on the topic. They claim they have never actually smelled Mr.Musk before but imagine that he smells like a combination of leather, cologne, and jet fuel. If that’s not enticing then I don’t know what is.
If you are for fun gag gifts, then this air freshener is right up your alley. The price is $9.84 after taxes and shipping. It also takes about 10 days for you to receive it. Should you buy this? Depends on how much you like Elon Musk or how much you are willing to spend on someone’s gag gift.
