Viral ‘Yeezy Cubertruck’

a video surfaced online this week that supposedly reveals the design of West’s very limited edition Yeezy Cybertruck. Adding an all-black, futuristic twist to an already pretty out-there and controversial design, the vehicle has only been reproduced three times in total, with West rumoured to be keeping one of the select few for his own personal use.

Reportedly retailing for $1.2 million USD (c. $1.8 million AUD), the car is all straight lines that come together in a strange, pyramid-esque point at the very top. With absolutely no visible external features — other than a Knight Rider-esque brake light on the rear, the design was quickly and relentlessly savaged by fans who made a swathe of unflattering comparisons.

“Pull up in that computer mouse”, joked one. “This dude is driving a DVD player”, said another. “I got that router in 2007”, said a third, following the 200s-tech theme of the roast. Perhaps the most damning, however, when you consider West’s avid, late-in-life return to Christianity was this comment: “This is why god doesn’t talk to us anymore”.

Others were a little more friendly or, at least, a little less critical. One commenter followed the popular meme about the Grand Theft Auto series: “We got a f*ckin Yeezy tesla before GTA 6”, while another suggested that the design “would be fire for the PS6”. Another made a more astute and practically-minded observation: “Imagine the cop saying please put down your window…”.

The final comment makes a very good point; we wonder whether this design is actually road-legal and how well its aesthetic edge will hold up with license plates tacked on to the front and/or rear…
