Now, this right here, folks, is what happens when people can't control their alcohol. In the above video posted by The Dashcam Store on YouTube, we see a drunk couple in Austin, Texas messing around with a Tesla Model 3. Of course, the whole thing was caught on dashcam, and thanks to the video's description, we got just a little bit of backstory surrounding the incident.
"Our new Model 3 shop vehicle was recently subjected to a bit of abuse, the poor thing! Thankfully no real damage was sustained but we do wish our custom-wrapped Tesla wasn't the play thing for this tipsy couple. Kudos to them for taking a rideshare rather than driving themselves home, at least."
As you can see from the footage, the woman is shown kicking the Tesla at one point, while her cowboy hat-wearing cohort appears to actually whip out his johnson and attempt to pee on the luxury vehicle. The description goes on to speculate as to whether or not Tesla's Sentry mode, which is meant to act as a security feature, actually coaxed the couple into their shenanigans in the first place.
"We wonder if perhaps the flash of the Sentry Mode 'warning' light did more harm than good in this case (by attracting their attention in the first place)," the description reads.
That could very well be the case, but as one YouTube commenter puts it, "If I saw tesla sentry mode activated, I would wave at it, not kick it or try to piss on it." Well said, indeed.
I'm gonna go ahead and guess (or at least hope) that this couple regretted their drunken choices as soon as they woke up the next morning. But, then again, you never know. Some people really can't stand Tesla.
