Googlers Turn Sergey Brin’s Tesla Into a Pink Batmobile With Eye Lashes for April Fools’

pink tesla2

April Fools’ Day has already passed (thankfully) this year, but the pranks are apparently still living on at Google’s campus. As can be seen in the photo above, Sergey Brin’s Tesla was given quite the makeover at the beginning of this week by his co-workers. Since this photo was taken yesterday by Forbes writer Ryan Mac, I’d say Brin is either warming up to the new look or too busy building Glass to worry about it.

Yes, it’s completely wrapped in pink. And indeed those are eye lashes on the front headlights. If you look closely enough, you can even see flames on the mirrors as well. According to Yahoo’s Motoramic, Brin has become nicknamed “Batman” by close friends, hence the logo on the hood and Batmobile-esque wings toward the rear. Last, but not least, check out the Chrome logos on his chrome two-spokes. Yikes.

One more photo below.

    Hey Sergey, if for any reason at all you don’t want that pesky tesla anymore, I’d be glad to take it off your hands! #ifihadtesla

    I saw this yesterday when I was at the googleplex. A Googler told me that his team did it (googlex?) It disappeared at 6, I wonder what happened.

      Seriously…this is the reason people HAVE and WANT Google Glass…to film the reactions to stuff like this! Irony.

    so did someone sneak into the car to install the zebra-pattern seat covers, steering wheel cover, and the fuzzy dice, or did he have those already???

    That’s what he gets for calling smartphones emasculating.

    “Last, but not least, check out the Chrome logos on his chrome two-spokes. Yikes.”

    The source articles say those were already there. So that’s Sergey’s own taste.

      Correctly labeled wheels. I like it.

    • C-Law

      Oh God, he has bad taste. Two spoke wheels? How hideous!

    I’m assuming that’s a vinyl wrap… whoever did it did a good job.

      it’s a spray. it can just peel off

    • http://www.theprogrocker.com/ John

      Yeah my guess would be plasti-dip.

      • Col_Angus

        I’m skeptical of it being dipped, looks too glossy for plasti-dip, even with a lot of glossifier added to the mix.
