There's a story behind this ridiculously wacky Tesla Model S, though it's not nearly as entertaining as the images.

In fact, I'm not so sure the story even needs to be told.

C'mon...It's a Tesla Model S with ears, whiskers and even a tail.  Could the backstory do it justice?

Complete With a Tail...Woo-Hoo!!!

Fine...here's the story.  That man is the world famous Monster Tajima, the guy who's won like every racing title in existence (just might be an exaggeration).

He's standing by the Model S in support of a Japanese eduction organization, which has marked this Model S as its Children's Challenge mascot.

Tajima and Children's Challenge have teamed in the past to put out material on electric vehicles, so it's fitting to see Tajima there at the unveiling of this zany Model S.

Rather boring story, right?

Maybe these remaining images will perk you back up.
