When Tesla announced its sixth electric vehicle, an oddly-shaped-all-electric pickup truck, it got the whole world watching. In the days after its unveiling, the internet went crazy about The Cybertruck, featuring everything from colorful memes to playful comparisons to SpongeBob SquarePants characters.
Golden Eye 007
Now, a YouTuber has released a video of The Cybertruck in the classic Golden Eye 007 movie in a video game. YouTuber Graslu00 inserted the truck in a clip that sees a video game illustration of Tesla CEO Elon Musk give the car to James Bond.
At that level of the game, Bond usually drives a tank around St. Petersburg. This time, the tank has been replaced by the smooth yet bulky Cybertruck, looking particularly dashing.
The video even features a conversation between Musk and Bond where they bash on fossil fuels and praise the eco-friendliness of the Cybertruck.
It's worth noting that Musk has tweeted that the truck was in fact based on a car featured in a James Bond film. In The Spy Who Loved Me, a Lotus Esprit S1 was used and even went underwater.

Although Tesla's Cybertruck won't be going underwater any time soon, it certainly has the square-like characteristics of the Lotus Esprit S1.
A rough start
The Cybertruck got off to a bit of a rough start when the armored glass window of the vehicle was shattered during the unveiling. Musk was quick to point out that this was an unusual glitch that would be fixed.
"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," Musk said Thursday. "I don't know why. We will fix it in post."
This approach likely worked as the truck then saw an impressive 145 thousand orders just two days after its unveiling. All is well that ends well.
