  • Tesla is selling a $55 Cybertruck decal inspired by Elon Musk's infamous window smashing incident.

  • "OMFG decal" references moment a Tesla engineer smashed the Cybertruck's windows with a steel ball.

  • Tesla recreated the stunt at the Cybertruck's launch — but with a baseball, not a ball bearing.

Tesla is selling a Cybertruck decal inspired by the windows that famously smashed during a demonstration at the futuristic pickup's unveiling.

The decal, which pokes fun at Elon Musk's botched attempt to show off the Cybertruck's unbreakable windows at its 2019 unveiling, is currently on sale for $55 on Tesla's online store, with the listing describing it as "celebrating the moment that made us all go OMFG."

It's a reference to the moment the futuristic pickup was first revealed, when Tesla engineer Franz von Holzhausen attempted to show off the toughness of the Cybertruck's "armor glass" windows by throwing a steel ball at them.

The demonstration backfired horribly, with the window cracking and the livestream audio picking up a stunned Musk muttering "Oh my f---ing god," in the background.

A second attempt went just as badly, with Musk joking that there was "room for improvement" after the Cybertruck's rear window also smashed.

Four years later, Holzhausen successfully repeated the infamous stunt at yesterday's Cybertruck launch event in Austin — although this time he threw a baseball, rather than a steel ball bearing.

That means it still remains unclear whether the Cybertruck's windows are actually as unbreakable as Musk initially suggested.

The billionaire told the Joe Rogan podcast in October that the premium "Cyberbeast" version of the pickup, which costs nearly $100,000 before tax, will come with properly bulletproof windows that won't roll down.

Yesterday's launch event marked the first Cybertruck deliveries after years of delays and production challenges, with Musk admitting that Tesla had "dug its own grave" with the Cybertruck's unique design.

However, not everyone is celebrating, with some Tesla fans criticizing the company after it revealed that the Cybertruck would cost more and have less range than it initially announced in 2019.

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider made outside normal working hours.
