Have Fun!

I'd call it cheap and effective advertising. It really only cost as much as the used roadsters value and a handful of go pro cameras. A dummy load used instead probably would have cost nearly as much. Judging by the crowds that gathered at Cape Canaveral, a lot of people were quite excited by the launch.
