Video: Tesla Model S Makes Big Screen Debut

5 years ago by Eric Loveday 3

Tesla Model S debuts on big screen in Time Framed teaser.

In the official teaser trailer for Time Framed-Episode One, the Tesla Model S makes her big screen debut.  Though only shown for a few seconds, it’s worth noting due to the fact that the series of Time Framed short films focus on clean energy in some sort of way.

Star character Ian Somerhalder, who’s now described as clean energy’s sexy champion, finds himself in the role of Agent Black, a gun-for-hire secret operative who battles against evil-doers aiming to steal a device that could provide the world with clean energy.  Luckily, Agent Black finds himself behind the wheel of a Tesla Model S, one of the world’s cleanest and quickest production electric vehicles.  It’s the vehicle we think James Bond should drive, but Agent Black beat him to the punch.

Our only question is this: what’s with the silver Model S?  Shouldn’t Agent Black opt for one in the darkest of hues?

    Reminds me of when the Aptera was driving in the Star Trek movie…. of course it never came to market.

    The key he flipped to the valet was definitely not a Tesla key.

    I don’t know how the plot for this movie goes, but the usual thing is that there is only one prototype in the world, and somehow the owner of this prototype then has complete control over the production/use of the device. Can’t the designers just build another?

    And what are the evil-doers motives? Do they want to produce cheap energy and keep the profits, or more likely they want to destroy the device and prevent it ever being used in order to keep making profits from more conventional means. Maybe they own coal plants or a uranium-enrichment company for nuclear power plants.

    However bizarre this sounds, it seems much too close to the truth. The answer to cheap pollution-free energy was developed in the 1960’s and successfully suppressed for about 50 years. Even now the proponents of LFTRs have not managed to gain any headway politically or industrially to bring a real working Liquid Flouride Thorium Reactor to life. Even though this is an American invention, the US government (via Secretary of Energy Steven Chu) has avoided any official recognition that such a technology exists, and even when asked about it Chu turns the subject into other variations of nuclear power. The LFTR is a specific design that is inherently safe, does not produce long-term radio-active waste, runs on cheap thorium, and no expensive enrichment process is required.

    The only country seriously pursuing this design is China. They will end up owning the patents, and if they are good to us, maybe in about 30 years they will build some LFTR plants in our country to sell us cheap pollution-free energy (while still taking a profit back home).
