Cybertruck Heads to Mars in “Beyond” Fan-Made Ad

With fans like these, who needs advertising? Tesla famously refuses to do any marketing for its cars and, by the looks of things, it doesn’t even need do. The fans will do all the heavy lifting.

With the historic SpaceX launch only days behind us, one Tesla fan took it upon himself to bring Elon Musk’s two biggest interests together in a video that could very well serve as a Cybertruck ad. To be sure, the video was not commissioned and / or sponsored by Tesla in any way, as Holmes Draws makes it very clear in the description.

You can see the video at the bottom of the page. The fan says he designed everything from scratch, with the exception of the astronaut and that this was his first project, so cut him some slack over perceived flaws.

“What a project this has been,” Holmes Draws says. “From creating everything (except the astronaut) from scratch on blender was an amazing experience. But along the way I hit innumerable frustrating roadblocks, but that challenge of problem solving was insightful too. There are a lot of things that I would’ve improved, but there are some things (like displacing and micro texturing the ground) that my laptop couldn’t handle.”

The video is not as atmospheric and well-put together as the other ad we told you about at the end of last month, which incidentally, also shot the Cybertruck into space, but it’s still a solid effort.

If anything, it stands to prove two things: the Cybertruck may never go to space but it sure looks like it would be a good fit, and Tesla has one of the most passionate and supportive communities out there. This also happens to save them a lot of money in advertising, but that’s another story for another day.
