“The evolution of the truck is here. Guaranteed shatterproof,” the toy company wrote on Facebook.
The all-plastic rig features a grey Lego brick attached to a four-wheeled platform: Simple, cheap, and easy to make.
Musk last week unveiled the Cybertruck—a Blade Runner-esque wedge of stainless-steel and “unbreakable” glass that already has 250,000 pre-orders.
Despite the fanfare, Tesla’s latest endeavor still has a few kinks to work out, including indestructible windows that can indeed crack.
Toy company Lego has introduced a tongue-in-cheek ‘competitor’ to Tesla’s James Bond-like Cybertruck vehicle with its very own indestructible pickup truck made from their trademark 2 x 4 bricks.
In a tweet Lego announced the truck is “guaranteed shatterproof” – a cheeky reference to Tesla’s now-infamous Cybertruck debut.
During a presentation in Los Angeles attended by Tesla CEO Elon Musk last week, the $39,000 car’s “armor glass” windows instantly smashed when struck by a small metal ball.
The stunt was designed to show off the indestructible design of the the all-electric, battery-powered pickup truck, but has now gone viral.
After the first window shattered, Musk swore loudly and then claimed the metal ball had been thrown ‘a little too hard’ – seconds before another window was smashed.
Although Lego didn’t offer up any spoof video of its truck similarly falling short of expectations, one person hilariously re-edited the photo of the brick with shattered windows, and tagged Tesla’s chief designer Franz von Holzhausen.
Other comments highlighted how Lego bricks are non-breakable and painful when walked on, with one person likening the experience to a “Danish landmine”.
