CBS 60 Minutes Adds Gasoline Engine Sound Effects To Tesla Vehicles
(Hat Tip: IHateTheMedia)CBS admitted adding erroneous audio effects to a recent 60 Minutes report on Tesla founder Elon Musk. Tesla vehicles, in fact, are electric and make little noise.
The battery-powered Tesla Model S is one of the world’s fastest and quietest luxury cars, but you might not know the latter if you watched the "60 Minutes" interview with Tesla founder Elon Musk that first aired on Sunday. Now CBS says it regrets the "error" that led to that impression. Following an introductory segment by Scott Pelley, whose wife owns a Model S, there is a series of shots provided by Tesla of a Model S driving down a road accompanied by the out-of-sync sounds of an internal combustion engine and the shifting of a transmission. The Model S has neither of these things.Here's a snippet from the CBS report:
(Yes, the video above is a parody of the report. Those are not the actual sound effects CBS used.)
