Tesla has launched limited-edition short shorts costing $69.420, CEO Elon Musk revealed in a tweet on Sunday. As of Monday morning, the red satin hot pants are already sold out. 

Musk, who has joked about selling short shorts before, appeared to be taking a jab at short sellers and investors against Tesla. 

The price of the shorts is likely a reference to the $420 per share price the Tesla CEO said in a 2018 tweet when considering to take the company private. The 2018 tweet prompted the US Securities Exchange Commission to sue Musk and call for his removal from Tesla. Musk has since settled the dispute and stepped as chairman of the company’s board

The shorts feature the word “S3XY” in gold on the back as a reference to Tesla car models. “Run like the wind or entertain like Liberace with our red satin and gold trim design,” the description of the pants read. “Enjoy exceptional comfort from the closing bell.”

Tesla didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
