People be crazy, ya know?

This morning’s episode of “Morning Monkey Business” is a short one inspired by a somewhat disturbing video I found on the Tesla Motors Club forum. The forum member (a saber-toothed squirrel) who posted it there provided a good enough lead-in title: “Tesla V. Tesla.” For the rest, you just have to watch.

A second somewhat crazy Tesla video that popped up on YouTube this week seems to have left a Tesla damaged in another way. With over a million views already, there’s a good chance you, your mother, and your pet rock already saw it, but here it is again:

And then there’s this beauty, which is either a somewhat dangerous joke or total lunacy (either way, it’s a reminder of why we can’t have good things):

Of course, the next video is a professional production, but it makes me cringe nonetheless and I don’t want to know how many people have seen a similar fate in the real world:

People, don’t street race.

Oh yeah, also, don’t drive with the wings up.


Naturally, it’s also not wise to go swimming in a Tesla.

Last of all, please, please, please, do not turn your Tesla gold.
