Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA)’s Model S has already garnered rave reviews from all corners of the world. Now the electric vehicle has received a glowing, and unsolicited review from popular cartoonist and Model S owner The Oatmeal aka Matt Inman. The Oatmeal is best known for the illustrated Hot Sauce and Odes to Cats.
Tesla Model S is an ‘Intergalactic SpaceBoat of Light and Wonder’
In a two-part cartoon, Matt Inman shows the world how much he loves his Model S, which he calls the “Intergalactic SpaceBoat of Light and Wonder.” But in the second part, to some people’s surprise, he requests Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) chairman Elon Musk to donate to help preserve the lab equipment used by the great inventor Nikola Tesla.
Some may argue that Inman’s lavish praise for Model S is aimed at buttering up Elon Musk for the donation request of a whopping $8 million to build a Tesla Museum. But if that was his real goal, The Oatmeal could have asked for money even without spending a considerable amount of time describing how much he loves the Model S.
In his review, Matt Inman says the Model S needs no gas, is silent, charges using a normal outlet at home, and has a motor rather than an engine. He dotes on the vehicle’s 260-mile range, safety features, touchscreen controls, and overall stellar performance. And there is very low potential for fire, considering it doesn’t consume gasoline.
Will Tesla CEO donate $8 million?
Of course, Matt Inman deserves points for his candid approach. And he has made significant efforts to raise funds for the Tesla Museum, says AdWeek. So far, he has raised $1.37 million to save the great scientist’s laboratory from destruction. The whole two-part Model S review reflects his passion, positivity and direct appeal.
Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) now has a glowing endorsement from one of the most popular creative talents on the Internet. And the review comes at a time when Tesla is trying to become a mainstream automobile brand. Let’s see if Elon Musk shells out $8 million for the museum.
Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) shares were down 0.43% to $189.34 at 11:38 AM EDT on Wednesday.
