We're back with more Tesla Eye Candy for a special "Rainbow Edition" in light of all the cool easter eggs Tesla has been hiding in its recent software updates. In our winning Tesla Eye Candy photo, Tesla Motors [NASDAQ: TSLA] posted on its Instagram that: "We have this thing with rainbows." Of course, when driving a Tesla there are zero emissions - this can help reduce air pollution, a huge issue in certain areas, especially China. But as you'll see in our featured videos (scroll down below), Tesla CEO Elon Musk has embedded some rainbow easter eggs as a not-so-subtle message that Tesla's zero emissions vehicles are clearly a better way forward for our planet.

For this week's featured videos, two new easter eggs prove Tesla's continuing dedication to rainbows. In the first video, we see that simply pressing the autopilot stalk in quick succession four times will give you a "rainbow road" which is also a Mario Kart video game reference. Also, notice the music that comes on -- it's a Saturday Night Live cowbell reference that Elon Musk tweeted about recently. In the second video, you'll see that when you insert your charger and click the button ten times in quick succession, the charging "ring" will alternate rainbow colors for you.
