The Cybertruck Embarrassment Continues

December 03, 2019

The laughs following the launch of Tesla founder Elon Musk’s Cybertruck keep coming, and one toy company refuses to LEGO of it.

The 48-year-old technology investor unveiled the electric car company’s newest product – a vehicle with a tank-like appearance dubbed the “Cybertruck” – to mortification on 22 November. The “shatterproof” windows of the vehicle broke during the demonstration, resulting in awkward laughs, and a flood of memes from the internet.

A week later and everyone is still poking fun at Tesla, and the latest jab comes from construction toy company, Lego.

The Denmark-based toymaker ‘trolled’ Mr Musk with a simple post on the official Lego Australia Instagram page.

On Tuesday, 26 November, the company posted an image of a lego truck – heavily reminiscent of the Tesla vehicle – with the caption: “The evolution of the truck is here. Guaranteed shatterproof”.

The bombed Tesla presentation had a real world impact though: Musk’s net worth dropped by an estimated $768 million, but he remains the 41st richest person in the world.
