Elon Musk loves The Witcher so much he wants to play it in his Tesla

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has remarkably opened up the possibility of Tesla owners being able to play The Witcher in their cars at some stage in the future. 

Musk and the Tesla brand are constantly looking for ways to innovate their technology and bring something new to their high-end vehicles.

As a fan of gaming, though, Musk is clearly looking for a way to bring one of his hobbies to his job – and it seems his love of The Witcher may be driving his desire to merge the two.

The Witcher was adapted for the big screen in December 2019 by Netflix.

Posting late in the day on January 21, Elon Musk clearly had The Witcher on his mind again, having frequently shared his love for the Netflix exclusive TV show on social media.

He decided to run a poll for his 30 million followers, asking people if they “want to play the Witcher game on your Tesla,” probably speaking about The Witcher 3 which became a huge hit among gamers upon its release in 2015.

Keeping his poll options Witcher-themed, Musk allowed followers to vote “Yes [tosses coin]” or “No, I have the plague.”

At the time of writing, there are still 20 hours left on the poll but it seems to have already been decided. With 85% of participants approving of the idea, it seems that players definitely want The Witcher to be playable in their Tesla.

As Musk points out, it is already possible to watch The Witcher in Tesla’s Netflix theater, so even if the game never gets added, fans can still get their Witcher fix by other means when they’re cruising in one of the most sought-after cars available today.

While a lot of people are joking about the idea in the replies, some have actually requested other games, asking whether they might be able to get Fortnite and Minecraft on there, too. And if there’s one person that can probably make it happen, Elon Musk is probably the right guy to ask.

Celebrity chef Guy Fieri is known for his wacky fashion sense as much as his incredible culinary skills. But, he is also a massive petrolhead, with a very unusual car collection.

The first thing you’ll notice about Guy Fieri’s car collection is that it’s just as wacky as he is. Immediately, you’ll realize there is a distinct yellow theme running throughout, with the majority of his vehicles being painted in the sunshine shade.

Yellow-ness aside, however, the cars in his collection are certainly impressive. From Jeeps to classic V8 muscle ones, Fieri has a vehicle for all situations – so long as it’s acceptable for it to be bright yellow.

Guy Fieri’s classic car collection

Guy is a massive classic car fan, and that’s evident from the moment you see his striking collection.

One of the coolest ones in his garage is his 1969 Chevrolet Corvette. With its exaggerated, bulging arches and drop-top roof, it looks menacing even in the prerequisite yellow paintwork.

His 1976 Jeep CJ-5 may not be the coolest car, but it might be one of his most iconic. Finished in bright yellow with flame decals down the side, this is a vehicle that’ll get noticed wherever Guy takes it.

A self-confessed Chevrolet lover, Guy has a number of cars from the iconic American brand in his collection. Alongside these, he has a number of other awesome and sometimes obscure classics. Here’s the full list:

  • ’69 Chevrolet Corvette
  • Jeep CJ-5
  • Chevrolet Chevelle
  • CSX Cobra
  • ’96 Chevrolet Impala
  • The iconic red Chevrolet Camaro used on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
  • Pontiac Firebird
  • Custom Chevrolet C10 truck

Guy Fieri’s supercars

It’s not just classics in Fieri’s impressive collection. While a number of his supercars are – you guessed it – bright yellow, that doesn’t make them any less cool.

Opting for a convertible version of the Lamborghini Gallardo no doubt helps keep Fieri’s iconic frosted tips upright at all times, thanks to the impressive performance from the V10 engine.

Alongside the Gallardo, Guy also has a number of other supercars in his collection. While they aren’t all bright yellow, they are all certainly cool enough for Fieri:

  • Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder
  • Aston Martin DB9
  • 2007 Chevrolet Corvette
  • 2011 Chevrolet Camaro

Of course, he owns a number of ‘standard’ cars too, perfect for getting around without any attention. In his fleet, he has a number of trucks including an ’04 GMC Sierra, Chevrolet Kodiak, and even a Cadillac Escalade.

Since a lot of his vehicles are classics, it’s impossible to put a price on Fieri’s impressive collection. Regardless of the cost, though, we can all appreciate the sheer coolness (and yellow-ness) of his collection.
