What began as an April Fools’ Day joke by Elon Musk may soon be a reality and people don’t know how they feel about it. Earlier this year, the Tesla CEO teased netizens with the idea of a Tesla-branded tequila, calling it ‘Teslaquila’ and it got the attention of many. Now, months later he informed his followers on Twitter that the tech company officially has filed an application with the US Patent and Trademark Office to trademark it!
The application identifies Teslaquila as either “distilled agave liquor” or “distilled blue agave liquor”. Tesla’s CEO and future former board chairman Elon Musk tweeted out a “visual approximation” of the label, which he had earlier posted in April, after fooling people that Tesla went bankrupt.

In the earlier tweet, he had mentioned, “Elon was found passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by “Teslaquilla” bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks.”

This is not a forward-looking statement, because, obviously, what’s the point?

“While there is no guarantee that a Tesla-brand tequila will hit the market, the company filed an ‘intent to use’ trademark for Teslaquila, which means that it is currently not using it, but has a ‘good faith intention’ to use it in the future,” CNBC reported.
Now, Netizens can’t stop talking about the brand’s probable liquor and can’t wait any longer!

The type of dude who drives a Tesla and drinks Teslaquila also probably thinks taco bell is real Mexican. https://t.co/nCDCVB6kHG
