Yesterday, Elon Musk revealed the bulletproof Tesla Cybertruck in a demo that went horribly wrong. Luckily, all wasn’t lost as the car’s simplistic design inspired countless Tesla truck memes.

Meme wizards were quick to point out that the low poly design reminded them of older games with outdated graphics:

Few CEO’s are as in touch with meme culture as Elon Musk, who recently donated $1 million to #TeamTrees, has asked to host PewDiePie’s meme review segment, and even took to Twitter to find the dankest of memes. The meme lords over at the subreddit r/dankmemes suspect that Elon might be trolling the world with this truck design.

Some Redditors expressed their annoyance at constantly seeing Tesla truck, Baby Yoda, and missing sub icon memes on Reddit.
