The new - and hideous- Tesla Cybertruck has been making headlines for its weirdly futuristic look and the incapability to live up to its name.
The viral video of the "shatterproof" truck having its windows smashed by a brick, has strongly changed opinions about the futuristic vehicle and it's staggeringly high price.
But of course, this epic fail has caused a surge of trolls and memes about the Cybertruck, and it seems that even Lego has made their own little dig.

Elon Musk had a little bit of an accident last week.
via: Getty ImagesWhen unveiling Tesla's latest Cyber truck design, Musk got, for lack of a better word, a bit cocky.
Musk claimed that the automobile was unbreakable.
via: Getty ImagesSo confident in the shatterproof design he asked Tesla's design chief Franz von Holshausen to throw a ball at the Cybertrucks window.
Maybe he threw it a little hard...
via: CBC NewsThe ball shattered the Cybertruck's supposedly shatterproof glass and, well, made Musk look like a bit of an idiot.
It was extremely awkward to watch..."It didn't go through [the glass], that's a plus side," Musk joked, desperately trying to make the situation better.
"It worked in rehearsals..."

Inevitably, the incident has led to people mocking Tesla...

The general design of the Tesla Cybertruck has raised eyebrows.
Tesla's new cyber truck. What a time to be alive. 🙄 #tesla #Cybertruck https://t.co/DiRSkMdBbB— Shehan 🧗♀️|🇱🇷|🇱🇰 (@Shehan 🧗♀️|🇱🇷|🇱🇰)1574435547.0
People are mocking Musk directly.
Man, Elon really nailed the design of the new Tesla #CyberTruck https://t.co/69GD2u2znW— Alex Hughes (@Alex Hughes)1574411004.0
Not that Musk seems to care.

The power of the meme.Since everyone started mocking Elon Musk's presentation through the art of Cybertruck related memes, Tesla's shares have dropped 6 percent.
The people have spoken.

And it's not only the people who have spoken...Lego has had their sly say too.
Lego is one of the biggest toy manufacturers in the world...
via: Getty ImagesAnd what is lego best known for? Being shaped into anything!
Cars and trucks are a popular lego shape...And with the current climate, it would be rude for Lego to not create a Tesla inspired truck.
Lego's truck looked uncanny to the Tesla Cybertruck...Posting on the official Lego Australia page, the toymaker shared a shot of a single block on wheels with the caption: "The evolution of the truck is here. Guaranteed shatterproof."
The post was instantly a hit...Lego has got in on the trolling action and it seems as though people are very much on-board with it - the Facebook post has racked up 12,000 likes and more than 15,000 shares in under a day.
People were impressed with Lego's wit...One Facebook user wrote, "And anyone who has ever stood on a Lego knows that Lego is supernaturally strong." Amen.
via: Getty ImagesNot so good. The Tesla Cybertruck has been torn apart online, so why on earth would anybody want to pay $90,000 for one?!
Turns out, there are actually some more redeeming qualities about the vehicle.

Recently, a video surfaced online of it doing what it is supposed to do...
via: YouTubeBeing impressive. That makes a change, huh? The fifteen-second clip, which you can see if you keep scrolling, shows the Tesla Cybertruck playing "tug of war" with a Ford F-150.
It's safe to say, there was no competition.
via: YouTubeThe Cybertruck dragged the other vehicle with ease and it was pretty impressive if I do say so myself.
"It's all good man."For anyone worried Elon Musk will end up crashing and burning like his demo did - don't be. Musk has a $23.6 billion fortune that no amount of memes could make a dent in.
You can't succeed without failing...
