The newest Easter egg from Tesla
On April 9, 2021, a Twitter user reported a new Easter egg that Tesla had hidden in the software. Anyone who gives their vehicle the somewhat obscene voice command “Open butthole” (in German: “Open the A **** hole”) ensures that the car opens the loading cap. Another user who posted a video of the process proves that this statement is true and also shows that when the prompt “Close butthole” the same charging connection closes again.

This is by no means the only gimmick of its kind that the company has hidden in its systems over time. For Easter eggs from Tesla, there is now even a separate Wikipedia page , which lists both those surprises that appear in regular models and those in cars that were not for sale. Of course, a Mars Easter Egg should not be missing – after all, we’re talking about the Elon Musk group, which wants to lead humanity to the red planet in the foreseeable future.
