    One thing that the interactions of the UI in the Model S lends itself to is...Rick Rolling. The first time my sons did it to me I could hardly drive, I was laughing so hard.

    So here's the gig. Somehow get access to the car after everyone has cleared out. Go onto Slacker, crank up the volume, and search for "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley. And then the key move -- you must quickly shut the door just as it is about to start playing the song.

    Hours later, when the victim arrives and opens the door...yep, they've been Rick Rolled... A happy way to start any day.

    For those who may not know about the talent within ElectricFarmBoy's household, a quick reminder ...

    Here was the original video made by Kon Otmer who took delivery of a Tesla Model S Founder's Series last year:

    And the response video posted by ElectricFarmBoy's sons, while waiting for their Model S:

    Well I hope you weren't planning on any more kids. After tomorrow, your odds will diminish. ;)

    Turns out she thought Tesla somehow rick rolled our car and she posted it to Instagram. I saw the post and let her know it was me. She thought it was very funny, but we are happy with 2 ankle-bitters ;)
