Unlike literally everything else in the automotive industry, the Tesla family of vehicles has buttholes. We knew it could fart, but this is pretty next level. A butthole? In my Tesla?

Not in the traditional sense of the anatomically-occurring muscular structure through which waste products pass, of course. Not even Elon Musk can potty train a car (as far as we know).

Instead, ?butthole? is what Teslas call their USB port, glove compartment, or in some cases, the trunk. You see, intrepid Tesla owners are eager to identify the voice command Easter eggs that have been planted in their vehicles, and in doing so, they?ve uncovered what has been charmingly dubbed ?The Butthole Command.?

What Is a Voice Command Easter Egg?

There are over 150 voice commands for Tesla vehicles, with new ones being discovered every day. You say a command, and the computerized magic makes it happen. Some voice commands are well known and pretty straightforward. ?Search Google for the weather,? for example, leads to a report back on local weather. ?Go home? will activate navigation to your cozy abode. These make sense, and there?s a good chance you?ll use them on a regular basis.

But, then you can tell your Tesla to ?open butthole.? Now, the origin story of how this was discovered is a bit unclear, and maybe it?s actually for the best. But, when this command is stated, your Tesla will obediently pop open the cover to the USB port. Usually. In some cases, drivers have reported that the vehicle has identified its butthole as the trunk or glovebox, so this might be an experiment best tested at home.

So, Then What?

Once the cover to the USB port is open, you?re free to use it to charge your devices as you typically do. In fact, when you?re done, you can tell the Tesla to ?close butthole,? and it will politely cover its orifice.

It turns out that this particular Easter egg has been mentioned since April 2020, but disbelief reigned until Twitter user @tesla_master made the big reveal on their account in April 2021. Model S and Model 3 vehicles respond to the ?Butthole Command,? along with a full range of current model year Teslas. As with most Easter eggs, it?s hard to track the phenomenon until it?s reported by real-life users.

In the meantime, this means two things. First, someone specifically programmed the Tesla to identify its butthole. Second, you?re never going to be able to think about the USB charger as anything other than a ?butthole? for the rest of forever.
