Lars has a new video out that covers market and production dynamics of Cybertruck and F-150 Lightning and at 18:24 in the video there is what looks like a Tesla supplied image of the Cybertruck with what looks like something big stuck to the right rear wheel. Does anyone know what it is? I think it's a frame grab from video so maybe it's a large bird the truck almost ran over.

Ford and the others are FORCE to produce more EV’s | Demand cliff & Osborne effect !!! - YouTube

Anyway, this is a good video that covers some important dynamics as EV trucks start rolling out. Worth watching (and subscribing as Lars 'gets it' while the mainstream media continues to fail). This EV transition is exposing the media for the dinosaurs they are to many people who were previously unaware just how screwed up your corporate news is.

But what's that object on the rear wheel? Maybe someone is familiar with the source video that would explain the mystery?

Video is for members only. Any way you can post of screenshot of what you are referring to?
Yeah, sorry about that! I thought Lars made his member's only videos available to all after a few hours but maybe some of them are permanently exclusive. Here's a screen clip:

Its the light reflecting off the edge of the angular hubcap at the top then the shadow of the hubcap blending with the silhouette of the rear bumper. Mountain.. meet mole hill. ?‍♂
