    Anyone else see HBO's "Clear History" movie?
    Seems like they spoofed Tesla a bit at the beginning with the story about a silicon valley EV startup in 2003...

    This trailer doesn't show much of it, but a hint about "electron motors":

    I'm not sure if it was a spoof or not, but I do think that movie is very funny.

    By the way, the "gotta figure out where that was filmed" gene in me had me trying to find the Coffee shop supposedly in San Jose. The clothes on the patrons looked more East Coast to me. Driving around possible places in Street View, I finally found it:
    Google Maps
    Marino's Cafe in Beverly, MA.
    (I could just make out a "Willis St" sign out one window, the reverse "200" address label on the window, and a used car lot across the street.)
