Yes. You read that right. Verne Troyer—the actor who portrayed “Mini-Me” in the Austin Powers movies and Griphook in Harry Potter—is cruising around in a bite-sized, shiny red Tesla Model S.
At just 2 foot 8 inches, Troyer is one of the smallest actors in Hollywood. He recently uploaded a new unboxing video to his YouTube channel for his 400,000+ subscribers to enjoy.
Troyer, 48, starts out his video showing off his tech-savviness by asking Alexa to turn on his hallway light; and then by unlocking his August smart lock on his front door. He opens his door to a relatively “huge” box that Troyer is unable to move. At this point, he does what any logical person would do and uses his motorized scooter to push it to his garage.
Once in the garage Troyer unboxes a Red Metallic Tesla Model S with black turbine rims exclaiming “I bought a Tesla!” It’s a fun video that will be sure to put a smile on your face as Troyer is cruising down the street at a whopping 6 mph.
After parking the Tesla in his garage next to another small car, Troyer promises more videos are sure to come. If we’re lucky, maybe we’ll get to see a drag race between the two miniature sports cars.
And you can get a tiny Tesla too. The Radio Flyer Tesla Model S for kids retails for $499. It features a working horn and headlights, a sound system, frunk (front trunk), and is even painted with actual Tesla paint colors. In addition to Red Metallic paint, customers can choose from Deep Blue Metallic, Midnight Silver Metallic, or Solid White. Buyers can even add a custom license plate, a reserved parking sign, and a car cover. Of course, keep in mind it has an 80 pound weight limit and is recommended for children ages 3-8.
