Top 5 ways Tesla's Cybertruck made our jaws drop

Cars
Ain't no party like a Tesla Party and the Cybertruck unveil underline that. Here the top five reasons why. [MUSIC] Tech bigwigs love to try and replicate a job z and one more thing and they all fall flat on their face. Naughty Elon Musk. [SOUND] In his own odd halting way he sort of rambled off stage. All right, thank you. Wait. [APPLAUSE] We've. Then brought on this thing, an electric ATV that docks on the back of the Truck wallet squats on attractively charging the ATV wallets up in there. Just about zero specs and details were offered about this thing so it may be about as serious as the flame thrower, but it was definitely one more thing. [SOUND] The proposed specs on the cyber truck are stunning Towing and loading as much or more than the big three pickups while going faster than almost anything Porsche makes with up to 500 miles of range and the top config, hit all the right notes. Now all they've got to do is bring this thing to market between 40 and 70 grand base Do so by 2021, is promised and hope there's still a federal tax credit applicable to Tesla cars by then invest in salt. Not since the original Saturn and it's plastic body panels have we seen a car take a beating and not show it like this Nayla. [SOUND] Cyber trucks stainless steel panels help form a radical exoskeleton and just don't dance. This will become the new vehicle you have nightmares about crashing into. There's no give. However, I wonder about paint. John DeLorean could tell us people actually liked. Number two is the ugly. I actually heard myself gasp when I saw them roll this thing on stage. Yeah, I know this is what it was supposed to look like but I thought that was subterfuge, are they kidding? This tops icons and hideosity like the Lamborghini LM 002 with a Pontiac Aztec as the ugliest thing to ever crawl the earth. And the three analysts of law are worried that Tesla doesn't really have the bandwidth to develop and design another model in their line. Fiber trucks looks tend to confirm that. [MUSIC] Ladies and gentlemen Steve Jobs just gave up the crown for most excruciating live demo fail. Well, chears I don't like this. [MUSIC] Must first show that an isolated panel of cyber truck glass is virtually Unbreakable. Great. Wait while you're ahead. Nope. Musk tells Tesla design boss Franz von Holthouse and throw a heavy steel ball at the glass in the actual truck while the crowd hoots and cheers him on like it's a truck stop strip show. [UNKNOWN] [SOUND] [LAUGH] And since this happened early in the event, the CEO of the most watched car company in the world rolling out arguably the most important car they've ever announced, has to do so in front of a smashed prototype. Now look, I figured this might have been a stunt to get people like me to do videos like this. But no virality Scott is slipping on a banana peel or having your pants fall down on stage. This just makes you look like you're not a real car company. Maybe that was a little too hard. [LAUGH] Maybe the biggest takeaway from the cyber truck event is that Tesla isn't just a leader in electric cars. They're the leader in branded dissonance. How can the Model S and model 3 come from the same companies that did this thing? And then there's the semi and the ATV. All this really proves is that Tesler is number one and doing what the hell it wants.
