Watch in disbelief as this woman tries to fill up her Tesla with petrol

We know the mainstream adoption of electric cars is still in its infancy, but this video proves some people really need to get out more.

We’re tired, Christmas and New Years just passed, and hell, according to our office Dalek we wrote 1,350,346 words in 2018 alone. It’s also Friday and we’ve just thrown our last bit of hard-boiled journalism out the window, so here, have a hilarious video of an attempt to gas up a Tesla.

We have to confess, we don’t know if this video is staged and we don’t know where it came from. And quite honestly, we’re not feeling like asking any questions today.

If this is real, then it could be anything. The woman in the video could be the victim of a prank, maybe the car is borrowed, or maybe, just maybe, she’s part of an international gang of car thieves based in Russia and, well, electric vehicles aren’t exactly a hot commodity over there.

One way or another, we invite you to simply enjoy the two minutes of straightforward, childish hilarity that it is.
