    Tesla 2001 "The Ultimate Gift" THIS IS A MUST SEE SHORT FILM.




    An homage to one of the greatest directors of all time and in our eyes one of the most futuristic car manufactures our planet has seen. Tesla Motors has reinvented the way we look at modern travel telling the population that it needs to think about the way we get around.

    From the makers of the Tesla Nod (Anthony Dever & Alex Mercier), Anthony Dever takes a different route to highlight his most coveted auto brand. Dever with Director Paul Kobelja pay's homage to one of the most talented directors of all time Stanley Kubrick and his infamous 2001 Space Odyssey motion picture is the setting.

    The Premise:
    Anthony an avid Tesla driver and owner decides he might be interested in upgrading to the new Tesla Model X due to arrive in early 2015. Something wonderful takes places. Our friend Sal 9000 unexpectedly shows up in this rendition of what we call Tesla "The Ultimate Trip".

    DONT FORGET TO LIKE!

    TO BE CONTINUED!

    Director: Paul Kobelja
    Director of Photography: Melissa Kobelja
    Executive Producer: Anthony Dever

    You have to be a serious "2001 A Space Odyssey" film fan to fully appreciate this video, as many of the computer's lines are quotes from the movie. Nice work Anthony! I particularly liked the way you worked in the lip reading scene ;-)

    Curious why it was removed by user. Did Tesla object to it?
