If you remember the Cybertruck’s unveiling in 2019, you’ll recall the infamous window-smashing incident that left Tesla CEO Elon Musk determined to give it another shot. Fast forward to Thursday’s event in Texas, where Musk and his team recreated the stunt with a surprising twist.

Tesla Cybertruck Window Redux
Musk, undeterred by the past mishap, recreates the stunt at the recent event. At the recent Cybertruck launch event in Austin, he called upon chief designer Franz von Holzhausen to take another swing at the Cybertruck’s windows. This time, the outcome was different. The glass held up post the impact. However, unlike previously, where a metal ball was put to use, a baseball was thrown at the windows this time around. So, for now, the question lingers in my mind: Are the Cybertruck’s windows genuinely as unbreakable as Musk initially claimed?

The Smashed Window Decal
Turning a memorable gaffe into a quirky memento, Tesla is now offering a Cybertruck decal inspired by the shattered windows. Priced at $55 and available on Tesla’s online store, the decal humorously commemorates the moment that had everyone exclaiming, “OMFG.”
The decal is a nod to the Cybertruck’s grand unveiling, where engineer Franz von Holzhausen attempted to showcase the toughness of the “armor glass” windows. The steel ball thrown at the windows led to a comedic catastrophe, leaving Musk admitting there was “room for improvement.”
What We Think
In the world of Tesla, even a shattered window can become a symbol of resilience. With the ‘Smashed Window’ decal, Elon Musk transforms a misstep into a humorous keepsake, proving that innovation and a good sense of humor go hand in hand in the realm of futuristic automobiles.
