Tesla CEO Elon Musk, known for including features like “fart mode” on cars, said Thursday that a new Tesla feature may be in the works: the ability to blast elevator music and jazz via external speakers.
Musk described it in a tweet, writing: “New Tesla feature coming that enables your car to play snake jazz or Polynesian elevator music through its outside speakers wherever you go.” The speakers are primarily there to emit a pedestrian warning sound, as mandated by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration due to electric cars being nearly silent at low speeds.

It’s unclear as of yet whether the feature will come to fruition, and Tesla didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider. But it’s not unusual for Musk to announce new features, including just-for-kicks Easter eggs, via Twitter. For example, Musk at one point suggested that Tesla was working on a fart app, and the company actually went through with it.
