Such a spectacular fail -- with Elon Musk shamed, no less -- deserves spectacular memes and jokes and the internet is obliging.

On Thursday, Musk found himself unable to explain why two armored glass windows on his futuristically-styled, very angular Tesla all-electric Cybertruck shattered from the impact of two small metal balls weakly thrown at them by Franz von Holzhausen, Tesla's chief designer. To be precise, the armored glass windows were cracked but weren't penetrated by the metal balls.

"Oh my f---ing god,” said Musk after the first armored window splintered.

Musk said the throw might have been too hard and laughed. At the very least, the ball didn’t go through the window, he quipped.

“Eh, not bad. Room for improvement,” Musk joked after the second throw, which cracked the other window.

Later, Musk said, “We threw wrenches, we threw everything even literally the kitchen sink at the glass and it didn’t break. For some weird reason, it broke now. I don’t know why. We will fix it in post.”

Previous to this fiasco, von Holzhausen hammered one of the doors with a sledgehammer to prove just how tough the 30x stainless steel body is at withstanding dents and blows.

The armored glass fail made Cybertruck the object of humorous and humiliating memes and media coverage worldwide.

"I cut my eyes just looking at the new cybertruck," tweeted one person. "Looks like a pinewood derby car gone wrong," said a Redditor. Someone commented the Cybertruck looks like the lovechild of a DeLorean and an El Camino. And, of course, Cybertruck looks like a triangle on wheels.

These comments are bound to taper-off since Musk on Monday finally revealed the reason for the spectacular armored glass fail. It was the fault of the sledgehammer, claimed Musk in a tweet.

"Yup. Sledgehammer impact on door cracked base of glass, which is why steel ball didn’t bounce off. Should have done steel ball on window, *then* sledgehammer the door. Next time …"

So, there. That's why Musk had pie all over his face at the Cybertruck reveal. But, believing this reason is another matter altogether. This means Musk should hold another event and throw steel balls at those armored windows and pray they don’t crack again.
