Someone Modded GoldenEye 007 To Include The Tesla Cybertruck

Tesla / Comments

A crudely rendered Elon Musk has also been added to the game, and he looks terrifying.

After its reveal last month, the Tesla Cybertruck became an instant target for ridicule, with many likening its bizarrely "planar" design to the sort of crude, low-polygon-count models that populated the early 3D video games of the 1990s. Someone photoshopped a heavily pixelated image of the Cybertruck into a still frame from Star Fox 64. Someone else took an image from the EV's reveal and cast the truck in a green hue, photoshopping a couple of Halo Spartans into the bed and driver's seat.

And then there's this guy, who modified GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64 to incorporate the Tesla Cybertruck as a drivable in-game vehicle, winning the internet in the process - and our hearts.

It's just perfect.

The design of the Tesla Cybertruck has proven polarizing, to say the least. Many observers expressed doubts that it was a real, production-bound design at all, pointing out that its Los Angeles reveal coincided with the events of the film Blade Runner - a film set in a dystopian Los Angeles in 2019 - and that if there's anyone on earth likely to troll the world by showing off a weird, Blade Runner-inspired "truck" as a tongue-in-cheek homage, it's Elon Musk. You know, the guy whose cars have a Spaceballs-inspired "Plaid" mode, and an infotainment easter egg that pays homage to James Bond with an image of the Lotus Esprit submarine from The Spy Who Loved Me.

In actual fact, the Tesla Cybertruck's blocky, slab-sided design is largely out of necessity; the body is made from ultra-hard stainless steel that is reportedly so rigid it can't be formed by conventional presses. Instead, panels have to be scored and folded into shape. That's what gives the truck its touted extreme dent-resistance.

Regardless, the Tesla Cybertruck prototype revealed in November makes for a most perfect James Bond whip.
