    Brands including Lego and Pepsi have taken to Twitter to mock Tesla’s ‘bulletproof’ electric pickup Cybertruck – both for its design and for the gaffe during the presentation.

    Toy company Lego tweeted on Wednesday: “The evolution of the truck is here. Guaranteed shatterproof,” with a picture of a pale-colored piece of Lego on wheels, referencing the incident during the presentation when the Cybertruck’s windows were smashed by a metal ball at its launch last week.

    Pepsi also did its own version, picturing a ball of paper hitting a can with the caption “Demo day,” shortly after Cybertruck’s launch.

    Fastfood chain Denny’s also tweeted “Revealed our Dynertruck the same day as the Cybertruck... smh.” SMH stands for “shaking my head.”

    The Dubai police force also tweeted a photo of Cybertruck – with their own branding.

    The brands joined the larger trend in the internet community of users trying to recreate the design of Tesla’s latest invention – or see how it could fit with other brands, countries or types of cars.

    Production of the Cybertruck begins in 2021 and Musk has claimed on Twitter to have had 250,000 pre-orders. Cybertruck pre-order reservations cost $100, but they are not considered official deposits for the vehicle, which has a $39,900 starting price.
