+ - 60 Minutes Dubbed Engines Noise Over The Tesla Model S 3

Submitted by cartechboy
cartechboy (2660665) writes "Did you watch the Tesla 60 Minutes segment the other night? If you did, you might have ended up on the floor rolling around laughing like I did. Since when does the Tesla Model S electric car make audible engine noises? Or downshift? Turns out, 60 Minutes dubbed engine noises and a downshift over the Model S running footage. The show claims it was an editing error. Call it what you want, it was absolutely hilarious. A little note to TV producers assigned to cover Tesla Motors in the future: Electric cars don't upshift or downshift."

60 Minutes Dubbed Engines Noise Over The Tesla Model S

  • When the story doesn't match the agenda you lie or you bury.

    • Pretty much every time you 'hear' a car on TV, you're actually hearing the pre-recorded engine noise, tire sounds, etc. that were added in post. That's why you'll hear tires screeching on pavement any time a car on screen takes off, even if it was sitting on gravel.

      What probably happened was that the audio editor saw a car in the tape, didn't know it was an electric, and added the default sound scheme.

      This is definitely one of those "never attribute to malice that which can be explained by ignorance" moment
