Actor George Clooney Kicks His Tesla to the Curb as Musk Defends the Brand - Yahoo Voices - voices.yahoo.com
The Huffington Post quotes Clooney in its colorful headline: "'Why Am I Always Stuck On The Side Of The ****ing Road?" The Daily Caller was a bit more gentle in telling of Clooney's enthusiastic early support for the car.
"I was one of the first cats with a Tesla. I think I was, like, number five on the list."
You've gotta' love Clooney for his "first cats" locution. He and comic Dennis Miller are the only surviving celebrities who can get away with a 60s hipster "cats" self-characterization without being ridiculed.
Clooney auctioned off his car for charity. It was a good buy. He didn't drive it much. When you have a choice between a 12 cyl Ferrari and a battery powered metal stamped shell, you go with the gusto.
Don't call Clooney an anti-technology Luddite. In his own words, he was "number five on the list" for getting an electric Tesla Roadster.
