‘I was kinda trapped’: Watch a Cybertruck try to eat a guy’s finger from Mashable

The Tesla Cybertruck is, famously, a vehicle with a reputation problem. This video of a Cybertruck owner appearing to have his finger almost cut off by his truck’s motorized front hatch is not going to help.

It was discovered early this year in the days just after the Cybertruck’s debut that the “frunk” (front trunk) was disturbingly capable when repurposed as a food slicer. Where competitor vehicles with automatic hatch closures would generally stop if they encountered blobs of fleshy, tender, organic material — possibly loaded with nerve endings — the Cybertruck was apparently more than happy to sever the object cleanly In one comparison test the Cybertruck fared the worst at avoiding hatch-related carnage among the other vehicles sampled, although some others did at least some damage to vegetables.

However, Tesla influencer Jeremy Judkins claims the situation has improved since then. “With just a software update, the Tesla Cybertruck frunk is way safer,” he says, describing a past video in which the hatch was kinder to various produce items. However, he says, his Cybertruck did lop off part of a carrot in his test, leaving him to wonder what it would do to a finger. Unlike most people, Judkins then (if the video is real) put his actual human finger on the line in the name of content science.

The result is the harrowing video above. His arm and full hand receive forgivable pinches, but then the truck chomps down on Judkins’ finger, and one can’t help but wonder for a few seconds if one is watching a gore vid. Then Judkins gets his other hand involved, and the robotic jaws release.

“That’s kinda bad,” he says, displaying his pinched and trembling finger.
