Slumber Support: Man Falls Asleep Behind Wheel Of Tesla On Autopilot.

A member of the media test drives a Tesla Motors Inc. Model S car equipped with Autopilot in Palo Alto, California, U.S., on Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2015. Tesla Motors Inc. will begin rolling out the first version of its highly anticipated "autopilot" features to owners of its all-electric Model S sedan Thursday. Autopilot is a step toward the vision of autonomous or self-driving cars, and includes features like automatic lane changing and the ability of the Model S to parallel park for you.

Well here’s your dumbass of the day. Or is he?

In the video below we have what appears to be a man piloting a Tesla down a congested highway. But taking a closer look, it seems as though he’s asleep. Concluding that, because it’s a Tesla, he’s put it on Autopilot and has nodded off. Total moron right?

Here’s the video.

Now, here’s why we think this guy is NOT an idiot and this is just an elaborate prank. The Tesla Autopilot feature needs human input to continue or else it will just stop working after it beeps at you a thousand times or so.

So nice try, random human. You’re not fooling us.
