Tesla robots were given submachine guns to fire at a Cybertruck

With all the hype surrounding the Cybertruck, it’s easy to forget that the new EV pickup truck is supposedly bulletproof.

Depending on how good your memory is, you may recall Joe Rogan firing an arrow at a Cybertruck while Elon Musk smoked a cigar.

Now a video has surfaced online showing Tesla robots firing a submachine gun at the EV.

And you can see it all go down in the video below:

The video, shared on X by podcaster Alex Lorusso, looks hella realistic.

If the truth be told, though, it’s just a CGI video.

As if Tesla robots would be let lose with a submachine gun, after one attacked an engineer at a Tesla factory during a malfunction.

The video shows a Tesla robot handing a Tommy gun to a another robot wearing a cowboy hat.

The Tesla robot then fires it at a Cybertruck being driven by a third robot.

After releasing rounds into the side of the EV, the robot driving the Cybertruck hops out and says, “I’m alive”.

While the video doesn’t really have a purpose, other than to entertain, it caught the eye of Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

Musk responded to Lorusso’s post with one simple but complimentary word: “Nice”.
