The Lego company could not resist the temptation to "troll" the Tesla Cybertruck introduced last week.
By showing Cybertruck, Elon Musk again managed to attract the closest attention of the whole world to Tesla. The angular design of the new pickup has led to the most controversial opinions, from complete delight to outright bewilderment. And although almost a week has passed since the presentation, the stream of humorous publications does not dry out on the Web, playing with a simple, bordering on primitive look of an electric car. I decided to join this competition and Lego company.
The Australian division of the maker of legendary building blocks posted on Facebook a photo of a standard Lego brick mounted on a 4-wheel platform - a kind of rudimentary car. The picture is designed in the same style as the Cybertruck promotional images. The caption under the photo reads “The evolution of the truck is here. Guaranteed shatterproof”, which can be translated as “Introducing a brand new truck. Guaranteed unbreakable."
The last phrase plays up the situation when, contrary to Musk's statement, the steel balls thrown at the Cybertruck windows still managed to damage them, although they did not break through. Subsequently, Tesla explained the appearance of such damage by the fact that the truck was first tested for strength with a sledgehammer, which led to the deformation of the glass, as a result of which they could not withstand additional tests. But if everything happened in the reverse order, then the presentation would have been more effective.
Trolling from Lego has already spawned quite a few counter jokes. Facebook users praised the "novelty", which is "simple, affordable and you can build it yourself."
