Like pretty much every other carmaker, Faraday Future tests their pre-production mules out on city roads, where they can be in full view of the public. Two members of the public saw this Faraday Future FF 91 mule out for a drive in Los Angeles (right by Trashy Lingerie, even), and their reaction was one that will make Faraday Future marketing people weep a little bit at their desks today.

Here it is. Watch until the end:

“Is that a Model 3?” The test driver–assuming he’s not an android with a lower body composed of wires and pneumatic tubes–gamely laughs it off, but you know, deep inside, this has to hurt.


This is the automotive equivalent of every time someone has come up to Nick Nolte and said “Gary Busey! I love your work!”

It never stops hurting.
