Elon Musk’s Hyperloop gets its own hilarious Taiwanese animated video

Telsa Motors and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has received a lot of attention for the Hyperloop, his futuristic transportation method to get from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 30 minutes.

Musk’s Hyperloop proposal shows people-carrying capsules running through a long metal tube at speeds up to 760 miles per hour. Each capsule could carry 28 people, and 40 total capsules could be in motion during rush hour. It supposedly would cost $6.1 billion to build.

But the idea is little more than a pipe dream at this point, and it could very well never happen. Which means it is ripe for parody and exaggeration.

A new video from Taiwanese animation firm Next Media Animation — the Taiwanese firm that creates Sims-like animations for popular news stories — tries its best to illustrate what the Hyperloop would look like with some hilarious results. Not only do passengers get a full cavity search before riding the Hyperloop, but their clothes fly off while traveling at crazy high speeds.

Check out the absurd video above.
