CD Projekt Red has been having a rough go of it with the botched release of Cyberpunk 2077. However, the company’s other major game, The Witcher, has maintained its popularity in part because of the game’s TV adaptation. Now, thanks to Tesla, you may soon hear the show’s popular song, Toss A Coin To Your Witcher, being played by random Model Y cars.
Tesla’s majority owner, Elon Musk, is well known for being the kind of person who appreciates memes and pop-culture. The billionaire even appeared on Pewdiepie’s YouTube channel to guest host the show’s meme review. As for Tesla cars, they’ve long allowed you to play Atari games, and even Stardew Valley, while you are parked.
Fittingly enough, DualShockers’ co-founder discovered the song in his Model Y around Christmas time. Apparently, the car had been shipped with an external speaker that didn’t have any functionality until the Christmas update was released. However, when Taveras was playing with some of the menus in his new car, he discovered that a new drop-down menu had become accessible, which would allow him to play the song.
Speaking to staff, Taveras explained that you can change the sound of the car’s horn (la Cucaracha is obviously the first one that everyone should use) as well as picking a “driving sound” which is where the “Toss a Coin” song comes in. The song first appeared in the Netflix adaptation of the Witcher story when the bard Dandelion sings of his and Geralt’s exploits. The song quickly became a hit among fans and has had over 2 million plays since it became available on Soundcloud.
The show’s leading actor, for his part, is also an avid gamer and has claimed that The Witcher 3 is one of his favorite games, having played through it multiple times. One has to wonder, though, if Henry Cavill will get himself a Tesla Model Y so that he can play Toss a Coin To Your Witcher while he is on his way to the set. As of now, we can only hope that such a thing will happen.
