    So we all know that the Tesla Cyber truck window demo failed but we didn't know why, until now. This video explains what most likely happened and that it wasn't the glass itself that was at fault.

    The second window also fell down from the first door being hit and the first window being smashed. That's enough vibration to make the second window fall down especially that we see how easily the first window fell.

      @Johnathan Berner he got too proud. The test was completely unnecessary. He could have shown the video. His embarrassment was a result of his pride and poor decision. Im not a hater of him whatsoever. But we can admit the truth, that he made a poor decision.

      @JohnE He got too proud. He could have skipped over the extra window demo. He already did a demo of the glass off to the side that took longer than necessary. He could have simply showed the video of the backstage window test too.

      Wrong!! Both windows where already down before he hit the door with the hammer.
      Were they intentionally left open?

      Its probably a good thing this happened, because they now know this is a problem that they can fix before the truck is available

            The glass didn't fully break because the man didn't throw it hard he threw it soft when you see closely he dosnt throw it hard therefore nothing different from normal glass

                They used a brown ball in the backstage video, and we all know brown balls are weaker.

                          Zombie Reaper not even my problem about this, my problem is he saying this somehow got overlooked because they never did this with the hammer first and wouldn’t realize this happened, and that he believes he can validate Elon’s reaction because he follows him on social media

                        what a lame excuse. the glass sucked. the truck sucks. and i would be surprised if this really sees production given its edgy design that will kill any pedestrians should there be an accident

                                So if I wanted to break in all I would have to do is hit the door twice then the glass and I'm in? Elon Musk is our savior

                                  okay for one, they didn't tighten it down more and more you idiot. they re-secured the glass after every hit as you can see multiple times as the mounts came loose -.- secondly, he is using a "Dead blow" hammer which is NOT a sledge. look it up. From the Wiki : Applications

                                  In auto repair, dead blow hammers are commonly used for chassis work, dislodging stuck parts and sometimes used for hubcap installation and removal (e.g. knock-off hubs). They can be used to pop out small dents when doing auto body repair. They allow controlled use of impact force when performing engine or transmission repair.



                                  Next: The video of them "Testing" the glass is AFTER the window break. See the tape holding the window up and the vacuum on the ground? kind of a dead giveaway that somethings different. and why would the record themselves testing it before? Kinda odd... not to mention the window holder on the back. just odd to be testing in such a manner. And for your "Window fell down a little" Theory, no way. You don't see a sliver of movement in that window. Why would they not secure the window in the vehicle?



                                  What really happened? One of two things. Either they fucked up and put the wrong windows in the vehicle hence why Musk said "Maybe too hard" OR it WAS for the media coverage. Common sense here peeps.

                                    I'm gonna have to disagree. If you watch a few police videos of an officer attempting to break a basic car window, with it rolled all the way up, its actually quite difficult. You have to hit it at just the right angle and placement for it to break.

                                      So basically what you’re saying is that the window can be opened rather easily without significant damage to the car body? Nice.

                                                    They hit the truck with a rubber hammer in a specific spot backed with reiniforcement and everybody is impressed. The steel ball trick was beyond stupid even if the glass did not break. What real life situation was that supposed to represent?

                                                    Here the magic, by offering $100 reservation Musk can take those flimsy reservations to a bank and get billions in investment money for a vehicle that will never be built as a production model.

                                                              And how the hell can glass go down. That isn't a fucking empty space.It's a mechanism fit properly for glass to auto open and close. If this justification is taken that proved that not only the glass sucks, but the entire car itself
