A Tesla fan created an incredibly compelling commercial about the new Tesla, against the background of a post-apocalyptic world where everything has been destroyed thanks to continual drilling and industrial wreckage. It’s a fascinating video that draws you into its world.
As people struggle through the post-apocalyptic landscape, the film is shown in black-and-white to indicate how bleak the world is. But then the Tesla appears. When it opens its door, the landscape changes to be full color, dotted with wind generators in a thriving world.
One of the beauties of this film is that it uses a voiceover of Nikola Tesla’s words, taken from an exhortation published in The New York Times in 1894.
“Perhaps it is better in this world of ours that a revolutionary idea be hampered in its adolescence. All that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combatted and suppressed only to emerge all the more triumphantly from the struggle.”
Those are inspiring words.
