Will Tesla replace Lamborghini as the ultimate music video car?
Music videos, especially rap videos, tend to have a collection of cool cars typically of the supercar variety. There have been some exceptions over the years but rappers tend to have flashy Lamborghinis in the background of their latest music video. But in a recent music video for the song Gang Gang, rapper Travis Scott decided to be more bold with his choice of vehicles.
Car enthusiasts should spot a variety of cool vehicles at the beginning of the video including a modified E30 BMW M3 and an FD Mazda RX-7. There some other '90s gems in their too but the Tesla Cybertruck is the star of the video.
After being spotted out on the road driven by CEO Elon Musk, this is the Cybertruck's first appearance in a music video and we doubt it will be the last. The truck's futuristic styling is perfect to draw attention while the bed makes for a perfect stage to rap on. In addition to the Cybertruck, the video also includes an appearance by the Tesla ATV, which performs a few donuts. We also see a reference to the "not-a-flamethrower," which was sold by Elon Musk's The Boring Company.
Musk must be a fan of Scott's music or else he wouldn't have approved the use of the Cybertruck in the video. We don't see the truck move in the video but the ATV clearly works well enough to do a few burnouts. It is also worth noting that the Cactus Jack record label is auctioning off the M3 featured in this video with the proceeds going to charity. BMW purists may not like the modifications done to the car but at least the proceeds are going to a good cause.
