Tesla’s Cybertruck has been in the limelight due to its unique features. Now it has again grabbed people’s attention but for a very unusual reason. During Thanksgiving, a man paid a delicious tribute to the new Tesla vehicle by sculpting its model out of mashed potatoes.

Greg Milano, an architect, took an hour to sculpt the exceptional model which was filmed by his brother. Dan Milano, the brother, shared a video of this creation on Twitter. Replying to his own post, he further shared a few more clips. One of which even takes a witty dig at the ‘shatterproof’ incident which happened during Tesla’s Cybertruck launch. The videos show how Greg carves out an almost perfect model of the car equipped with a tailgate and wheels.

Here’s another image showing the truck being made intricately.

With patience and careful strokes, the video shows Greg, scooping out portions of mashed potato to shape the back of the truck.

Showing the end result, Dan wrote, “Ramp is down.”

As a finishing touch, Greg pours gravy on top of this ‘mash-terpiece.’ Finally, he eats it as a Thanksgiving meal.

Posted on November 29, the post gathered close to 3.9 million views and counting along with 2.8 lakh likes. Netizens had some really funny comments about this mouth-watering sculpture.

“The hardest part was definitely the geometric lines of the design, keeping the proportions correct, achieving the illusion that it is sitting on four wheels and creating the thin walls of the bed of the truck with the tailgate down,” Milano told CNN.

What do you think of this tasty model truck?
