If getting the new Cybertruck to be the talk of the town was Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s prime objective, then by all accounts, he nailed it with Thursday night’s presentation.
Thing is, it wasn’t as nearly positively received as Tesla’s hand-picked and clap-happy audience would have you believe while watching the live-streamed event in California. No, no, we’re not referring to the unbreakable window that broke – that’s something they’ll figure out at Tesla, but to the reactions to the Cybertruck’s design.
We can’t remember the last time we saw a new automotive product being so heavily criticized and even ridiculed for its styling well before the presentation was complete. There are literally hundreds of #CyberTruck memes circulating on all social media and commenting platforms, including our own.
As is often the case with products and brands that have a strong and dedicated following, fans will often point to the old adage that “all publicity is good publicity, as long as they spell your name right” or “the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about,” and so on. Take your pick.
Now, you can also take your pick from the sample of memes that caught our attention on the interweb or better yet, give us your own top picks in the comments.
