Comedian Lil Duval aka Roland Powell's latest Instagram video immediately became a sensation as it shows him smoking a hollowed out cigar with the autopilot feature of his Tesla vehicle allowing him to take his hands completely off the steering wheel. 

The stand-up comedian, MTV2 host and music video star is seen blowing out plumes of smoke while the Maze and Frankie Beverly song, "Silky Soul," can be heard playing over the car's speakers. Lil Duval is casually reclined back smoking as the Tesla semi-autonomous computer system has taken partial control of the vehicle's steering. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has suggested in the past that by 2019 drivers will be able to sleep in their fully autonomous vehicles.

A representative for the company clarified the safety practices for its vehicles, noting that Tesla's autopilot is part of an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) that is designed as a "hands-on experience," unlike what is shown in Lil Duval's video clip. Tesla's website reiterates that "until truly driverless cars are developed and approved by regulators, the driver is responsible for and must remain in control of their car at all times."

"What y'all fake caring about today," the comedian asks on his lilduval Instagram post from Saturday.

The company writes on its website, "All Tesla vehicles produced in our factory, including the Model 3, have the hardware needed for full self-driving capability at a safety level substantially greater than that of a human driver." 

The comedian has even cracked jokes about the pricy Tesla brand before, "Man I wished tesla wouldn't make a cheaper version. But I get it," he tweeted in March 2016.

Among the capabilities of the Tesla Model S and Model X autopilot features are eight cameras that surround the vehicle and provide 360 degrees of visibility around the car at a range of up to 250 meters. There are twelve ultrasonic sensors to add to the clarity of the car's vision, which allows for "detection of both hard and soft objects at nearly twice the distance of the prior system."

There's also forward-facing radar for "additional data about the world on a redundant wavelength that is able to see through heavy rain, fog, dust and even the car ahead." Much of the vehicle is operated by a state-of-the-art onboard computer system.

“The American dream,” reads several of the now-viral video's top comments.
