Not even toy company Lego could resist taking a jab at Tesla over its unusual Cybertruck design.
Last week, Tesla unveiled its electric pickup ahead of the Los Angeles Auto Show. The Cybertruck’s odd design – a triangular-shaped body made of stainless steel – drew a wide range of opinions, from “eccentric” to a “piece of junk.”
One of the highlights (maybe not for Tesla) was a demonstration of the truck’s bulletproof windows, which shattered onstage after they were hit with a metal ball.
Across social media, there have been countless jokes at Cybertruck’s expense, but arguably none better than Lego, which rolled out its own truck of the future.
“The evolution of the truck is here,” said Lego in its tweet posted Wednesday. “Guaranteed shatterproof.” The tweet was accompanied with an image of its truck made of wheels and three Lego bricks.
As of Friday morning, the tweet has more than 101,000 likes, and lots of happy followers.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently revealed the Cybertruck has secured more than 200,000 preorders. According to the Tesla website, you can preorder the truck by putting down a $100 refundable deposit.
