The launch of the Tesla Cybertruck didn’t go completely as planned, unless you think Tesla CEO Elon Musk wanted two windows on the truck to smash in order to, I dunno, make himself seem endearingly fallible or something. At any rate, Musk posted a video late last night showing the front window not breaking after a steel ball impact. We can all go home now.

In all seriousness, I quite enjoyed the Cybertruck’s launch. Every car launch should be that fucking weird.
