Well, apparently, mission accomplished. R.J. Collins and James Khabushani took $1,500 and created a 60-second Tesla "faux-mercial" dubbed "Modern Spaceship" that is well, pretty good. Elon Musk noticed, tweeted it and has helped the thing go viral. Makes you wonder why TV commercials cost so much to make when these guys created this for a fraction of what it would normally take.
