The new - and hideous- Telsa Cybertruck has been making headlines for its weirdly futuristic look and the incapability to live up to its name. But just because some of the little kinks haven't been worked out yet, doesn't mean the actual product is a complete failure, right? I promise you, it does have some redeeming qualities. The latest video to emerge has definitely proved that.
Keep scrolling to see the video that made people re-think their original opinions of "the car of the future."
Elon Musk had a 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: TwitterThe ball shattered the Cybertruck's supposedly shatterproof glass and, well, made Musk look like a bit of an idiot.
"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 Elon 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.

But there are some more redeeming qualities about the vehicle, I promise...

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 Telsa 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.
But was it a fair game?

"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...
