Elon Musk set the precedent when he threw a metal ball at the Tesla Cybertruck's window all those years ago. Now that the ostentatious electric pickup is in production, people won't stop testing its durability with, um... guns. And sledgehammers. And high water crossings. It's been entertaining, of course, but Cybertruck lead engineer Wes Morrill is kindly asking folks to cool it with the ballistics and such.

Morrill tweeted about the tests, seemingly half-joking:

He's not wrong. It says more about the customer base than anything when people fork over nearly six figures (or well above $100,000) for a truck only to assault the product they purchased. Sure, they may get some of that money back if their clip gets millions of views, but YouTube doesn't pay that well. Right?
