Tesla’s cars already have a wide range of Easter eggs, as the ability to activate “speed mode,” support for volume settings that go to 11 and up. Brecently, Tesla owners have discovered a new trick that is perhaps the most childish yet.
Recently viewed by @tesla_master on Twitter, it looks like Tesla added support for a voice command that gives you access to the car’s charging port by saying “Open Butthole” with the accompanying “Close Butthole” command designed to close the port when you have finished charging.
While this recent discovery only accounts for a handful of more than 150+ unofficial voice commands working with Tesla cars, it is certainly much more attentive than just asking the car to fold or unfold mirrors.
Based on a handful of videos on Youtube, the “Open / Close Butthole” commands appear to work on a variety of Tesla makes and models, including older Model S and Model 3 vehicles. ISLANDn some cars, however the command may possibly trigger the trunk or even the glove compartment to open instead, so certainly do not test it while the car is in motion. And while the command has begun to garner much more attention late, Easter eggs were actually seen as early as April 2020 but had not become known or available on a wider range of vehicles until recently.
Oh, and just in case anyone is big Beavis and Butthead fans out there, Tesla also supports a slightly tweaked voice command that allows users to open the charging port by saying “Open Bunghole.”
Still, with Tesla CEO Elon Musk somewhat happy to respond to random feature requests from users on Twitter, you can bet that “Open Butthole” will not be the last somewhat dubious voice command added to Tesla cars. Who says smart cars can not be a little silly (or maybe cringey), also?
