Lego takes at dig at Tesla's Cybertruck, reveals its shatterproof truck1 min read . Updated: 27 Nov 2019, 04:00 PM IST
The Lego truck pokes fun at Cybertruck without actually naming it or naming Tesla.
- The Cybertruck was recently launched by Tesla and touted as the future of truck mobility.
In the days since Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck, its go-anywhere electric pick-up truck, discussions on it have ranged from its capabilities, its design as well as the fact that its window shattered during a test demonstration at launch. It may just be fair to say that the third topic has been quite dominant with digs, jabs and memes galore on the fact that Tesla failed to prove Cybertruck's claimed strength.
Now, Lego has joined in on the banter by sharing a photo of a Lego truck. Without actually naming either Tesla or Cybertruck, Lego managed to make it amply clear where its message was directed at. "The evolution of the truck is here. Guaranteed shatterproof," its post read under the photo of the toy truck on Facebook.
At last count, the photo had received 12,000 likes and a high number of shares as well. While most people praised Lego for being quite witty, there were also many others who used the post as a platform to slam the Cybertruck.
During the launch of the Cybertruck, a sledgehammer was used on the side door of the vehicle in order to showcase its strength and durability. True to the words of Tesla's Elon Musk, there was hardly a dent. Then, Musk invited stones to be thrown at the window of the Cybertruck but this backfired when the only two stones thrown created a spiderweb-like crack on the glass. Musk would later say that using the sledgehammer may have weakened the foundation of the glass, causing it to crack the way it had when the stones were hurled.
All skepticism and criticisms aside, Cybertruck has received over 250,000 orders in just a few days since being launched. And despite the mixed response to it, the Cybertruck continues to be quite the talk of town.
