    Cool! That's her second Tesla. I was really hoping she would whip out the voice just once there... I guess the giggle sounded bart-like!

    Cowabunga! I use autopilot everyday on my work commute through two interstates- probably driven more autopilot miles than not (since the update). I've also started using on non-interstate highway (with extreme caution, I know, I know) and since the most recent update with constraints placed on speed limit, the car now adjusts AP to only 5mi over speed limit when I go through small towns and such. I <3 AP. :)

    I saw her in an interview once and she said she was expressly forbidden, by contract, to use the Bart voice in any situation other than recording the Simpsons.

    I recall hearing her interviewed on "Fresh Air" (NPR) and she used that voice.

    She did a little skit with it at the Tesla Club LA Formula 1E event last year.

    I believe Tesla and Elon have already appeared in The Simpsons

    I wonder if she is any relation to the blonde girl in Mark's video.:smile:
