Over the years, Tesla has sold many strange products. McDonald’s in China now has Cyber ​​Spoon. But it is very limited.

Tesla They were not sold for only a long time Electric cars. In the online store you can also find snow chains, roof racks and wall boxes. And from time to time also other exotic products, e.g Christmas sweater with manufacturer models or Tequila glasses with Tesla logo. In China there have been karaoke microphones for some time. The manufacturer is now working with McDonald’s there.

The result is a very strange product: Cyber ​​Spoon. As part of a promotion with McDonald’s, they sell for about four dollars, Carscoops reports. However, the Spoon, whose design is reminiscent of the Cybertruck, is limited to 50,000 pieces.

But Musk was very wrong about that, which is what Merritt also told him. The electric car manufacturer has already promoted the Cyber ​​Spoon on Tesla’s official Weibo account. McDonald’s also announced the campaign on the popular Chinese social media platform Xiaohongshu.

Tesla sells Cyber-Spoon at McDonald’s – with reference to ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’

On Cyber ​​Spoon’s handle is written: “Don’t panic.” An obvious reference to Douglas Adams’ classic The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The sentence flashes in friendly letters on the cover of an intergalactic travel guide for wanderers. This slogan was also written on the rocket during the first flight of the Falcon Heavy rocket from SpaceX (also Musk’s company).
