Unboxing The Boring Company flamethrower

Gadgets
In the beginning man discovered fire, and now in year 2018 let's unbox recreational flamethrower. [MUSIC]. We picked up the quote unquote not a flamethrower today at the Boring Company in [UNKNOWN] California and now it's here in our studio and ready to be unboxed. We already have our instruction manual ready to go. You can see it's only a few pages long. Flamethrowers don't seem to be that complicated, but there are some important safety rules. How to hook up the actual flamethrower to the propane tank, and so on. So, without further ado, let's unbox this thing. I have to say, probably the most exciting unboxing I've ever done here at C/Net. All right, guys! We're gonna open it up. [MUSIC] Okay, so on the lid here we have a key for our flamethrower. And I'm gonna lift this up so we can reveal. Ta-da. Okay, so let's walk through this. So number one is the nozzle. that's this and they tell you in the instruction manual that it's very hot and not to touch it after you use the flamethrower for about two hours. And number two, you got this really awesome Boring Logo right here. I guess awesome Boring logo is a little bit of a contradiction in terms. But we'll take it. And it's a 3D one. It sticks out which is really neat. Number three is the ignition switch which will light the fire, right there under the Boring Company logo and we got number four which is our profane tank. Right there That number five. That is the fuel bracket. This is what holds the propane tank onto the flamethrower. Number six, an idol knob. That is what connects the fuel bracket to the propane tank. And then you've got your regulator, that's number seven, that's right here. That's gonna allow you to turn on or off the propane flow into the Not A Flamethrower. And then you've got your trigger. Everyone knows what that's for. Fire. And then of course nine is your shoulder rest. You put the flame thrower up against your shoulder. And ten is your ergonomic palm placement. So you wanna pit your palm right here. Right at this part of the flamethrower. Let's pull this thing out of the box shall we? My god, it is really heavy, okay. So here it is, The Boring Company Not a Flamethrower. You can see the propane tank is not attached, of course they're not gonna wanna send these things out with an attached propane tank, that seem slightly dangerous. It's pretty big, you can see it's about one half of an Ashley Very important we have our Boring company Not-a-Flamethrower serial number right here, which is 01127. And I'm actually going to do the traditional peeling of the wrap off of that part of Not-a-Flamethrower. [MUSIC] Ta-da. So I was looking at it a little bit closer, and I just noticed a very tiny red letter, not A, underneath the Flamethrower part of the serial number badge, which is pretty funny. I'm going to go ahead and And plug in this propane tank, but unfortunately, we are inside in the middle of a studio that has a lot of fire safety rules, and so I will not in fact be firing this thing up today. Take out the propane take, put it in here, make sure that regulator set is off, that it's closed I don't want this whole studio to smell like gas. That'll be very bad. And then we're gonna place it. [SOUND] It's loaded. So yeah, this is it. This is The Boring Company flamethrower, or I guess, not a flamethrower. I can't light this. I am really sad but I would actually kill one of our wonderful camera man so I am going to go ahead and keep this unlit until a future video so keep an eye out for that guys that is our boring company and not a flame thrower on boxing, c dot net for future not a flame thrower videos, alright.
