Sparks Fly as Joe Rogan Shoots an Arrow to the Side of the Tesla Cybertruck, Says New Elon Musk Interview Dropping Today

Joe Rogan shoots an arrow to the side of the Cybertruck from close range where sparks are seen flying as the arrowhead meets the Cybertruck’s stainless steel exoskeleton. Rogan also shared that a new interview with Elon Musk will be coming out today.


The Cybertruck, unlike all mass-market vehicles in history, is designed from the factory to be bulletproof. This is thanks to its ultra-hard 30X cold rolled stainless steel exoskeleton.

The fact that the Cybertruck’s body is bulletproof might seem like folly or an unnecessary overkill to on-lookers who are predisposed to looking at Tesla’s decisions through a harsher lens.

However, there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for why Tesla decided to make the Cybertruck Uber sturdy. And that reason is that Tesla plans to make the Cybertruck the most resilient truck in the world.

To emphasize this point, Tesla recently emptied the drum magazine of a Tommy gun “Al Capone style” onto the side of a Cybertruck prototype. As the EV maker promised, despite close to 60 bullet marks, none of the fired shots breached the passenger compartment.

In addition to the strength of the Cybertruck’s exoskeleton, Tesla has also been testing the Cybertruck’s overall durability by driving the truck through 1280 miles of a dirt road in Baja, Mexico; driving the vehicle on ice glaciers in New Zealand, Alaska, and Ice Land; and in the searing heat in Mojave, California desert where the truck became unable to supercharge and had to be towed after breaking down

On top of strength and durability, Tesla has also been testing the Cybertruck for practicality. The practicality tests include driving the vehicle around tight parking where the Cbyertruck utilizes its 4-wheel steering to efficiently extricate itself or towing and highway drives where a Cybertruck prototype was recently pulled over by a cop in California.

All the situations Tesla has put the Cybertruck in have certainly been exciting. However, a recent Cybertruck test by Joe Rogan might be the coolest of them all.

The host of the popular JRE podcast recently got a chance to test out the Cybertruck’s durability in person. In the Instagram post following this encounter, Rogan is seen shooting an arrow straight to the side of the Cybertruck from a close range.

In the picture, you can see sparks fly as the arrowhead meets the Cybertruck’s stainless steel exoskeleton. Rogan captioned the picture saying “Turns out Tesla Cybertruck is arrow proof too.”

This is amazing to witness, however, adding to the excitement, Rogan also added that a new Elon Musk interview will be coming out today. Joe Rogan’s interviews are usually several hours long and cover a wide range of topics which makes us hopeful that we might get new details about the Cybertruck.

Currently, besides confirming that the Cybertruck was able to withstand an arrow from close range, Rogan has not revealed any more details about the truck or his interview with Elon Musk.

However, with the podcast coming out in the next few hours, we’ll be sure to keep you posted if we learn more about the Cybertruck or Tesla in general. Until then, make sure to visit our site regularly for the latest updates.

Stupidity at its finest. Pretty sure that Tesla truck would be shredded with 7.62 rounds and probably 5.56 also. Never mind the glass. Musk should be sued if this is being marketed as bulletproof. More like bullshit. Stupid arrow stunt also. What the hell was supposed to demonstrate?

The arrow head wasn't made out of stainless steel. Genius metallurgists everywhere. Rogan and Musk definitely colluded and put on a fake show. TG for us keyboard tapping engineering geniuses, huh?
