Love him or loathe him, you can’t deny Elon Musk has a sense of humor.
Cybertruck owners know this only too well after discovering a hidden feature of the EV pickup truck – and it’s doing the rounds on social media.
Check out the Cybertruck’s hilarious Easter egg feature in the video down below!
@Teslaconomics posted a video to X of someone discovering the hilarious Easter egg feature, and suitably losing their mind over it.
In the video, the Cybertruck driver is seen tapping the EV’s screen on the dashboard.
On the screen, there’s a picture of the truck – and when you double-tap the window, a crack appears.
You might be wondering why on Earth it does that, but if you cast your mind back to 2019, you have the answer.
When the Cybertruck was first unveiled, we were promised ‘shatter-resistant Armor Glass’.
According to Tesla at the time, the windows of the Cybertruck could resist the impact of a baseball thrown at 112 km/h (70 mph).
However, Tesla’s chief designer tried to prove its strength at the event, throwing a metal ball at one of the windows – but it cracked.
Not once, but twice.
It goes without saying, it was pretty embarrassing for Tesla.
So to save face, at the delivery event in November 2023, the designer softly threw a baseball at the window – which stayed intact on this occasion.
The Cybertruck’s Easter egg feature seems like Tesla is poking fun at itself.
“Elon, you a fool for this one. Thanks for always making a tesla so much fun,” @Teslaconomics captioned the video.
Musk even responded to the post, saying: “We like to put little fun Easter eggs in our cars. Small, unexpected delights are part of what makes life worth living.”
