Have you ever taken all the drugs, and then all the thoughts come out? And then you posted all those thoughts on Twitter? Oh, and you're also the multi-billionaire CEO of a multi-billion dollar car company? No?


Oh. Because that's what Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, did.


Last night Musk decided that the best thing to do after getting surgery to correct a deviated septum, was to field questions on Twitter despite the pain medication. When asked about a Tesla pickup truck, Musk actually seemed to like it, in his drug-fueled haze:

A pickup truck with a low center of gravity, huge torque, and sports car handling? Sounds like a Ute to me. Perhaps the best part of all this, though, was the reasoning for the the evening festivities:


They do say that living well is the best revenge.

We should remember that this isn't the first time Musk has stated his desire for an all-electric pickup, as he told the Automotive News back in April that he'd like to build a pickup:

"I have this idea for a really advanced electric truck that has the performance of a sports car but actually more towing power and more carrying capacity than a gasoline or diesel truck of comparable size," Musk said. "That could be really cool, and I think that would probably make sense to do that at a new plant."


Let's just hope he wasn't on all the droogs at that time either.

I think a Tesla pickup would actually be pretty sweet, and would make a lot of sense around construction sites and whatnot where workers wouldn't have to drive very far. It could go a long way towards cleaning up the air around work sites, as well. What say you though, yay or nay? Think a Tesla pickup is a good idea?
