It's stunning to think that not that long ago, not only was that commercial acceptable for TV, a lot of people watched it and thought, "Hey, I want that so I can drive around and tell chicks they have nice asses!"

Yes, just what I want. To be on the hook for hefty court fines because my car is sexually harassing strangers while I run into the store

"I'm sorry. I'm so terribly sorry. I've notified the local authorities. I hope you'll be OK." *peel*

Never mind that - it's the implicit kidnapping threat. "Damn, I love it when they run!"

Not a shock at all that someone as creepy and disconnected from reality as musk would think this is a good idea

Hey! <slams on Tesla hood> I'm walkin' here!!

Starting to think any good innovation coming out of Elon's companies were not thought of by him, and he probably fought against them all at some point.

I can see what happened here - places tarted mandating that electric cars make a noise to alert pedestrians, so musk being musk was like 'well I suppose if we have to install speakers on the outside....'

well that and his usual array of fart sounds.

Could be worse. Jeff Bezos would have made Tesla with Special Offers. For $10,000 off your Tesla, when your Tesla detects people nearby, it will play audio ads at those pedestrians.

That's literally the opposite of how the ads would work. Bezos would want to maximize as revenue turning into sales, so the location of your car, the people in proximity, they'd definitely play into the crowd, not against them.

Holy crap that's an amazing idea - use the cameras - "Hey fatty, we've got 20% off at your local gym....."

When you ridin' in da hood, just have Ludacris "MOVE BIATCH"  blaring out those speakers.

Tom Marvolo Bombadil: "Out of the way you pedo!"


I was going to use 'prole', but same sentiment, demographically.
 
hej
2020-01-13 08:28:21 AM  
I'd rather have the car occasionally yell at people when it needs to that have always on noise as a "warning" system.
 
2020-01-13 08:48:34 AM  
"Pull yer face outta yer screen or I'll run over yer thumbs!

That would be a good thing, yes.
 
2020-01-13 11:36:05 AM  
That's a good way to get your car shot at, just saying. Or maybe I just flatten the tires later.

So, when near a rap concert play the sound of gunfire into the crowd?

FormlessOne: "I'm sorry. I'm so terribly sorry. I've notified the local authorities. I hope you'll be OK." *peel*


Or perhaps in AV self-driving mode., "I'll give you $20 if you get off the street and let me pass"

/Pedestrian  , "Not budgin' for less than $50.   The AV police car had to pay me $20"
