Mysterious crate found in Shanghai

At midnight on July 20, a mysterious crate was dropped in front of Tesla’s Gigafactory in Shanghai. Many people tweeted pictures of the huge box and puzzled over what it contains. A lot of them already suggested that the red box with the blue tarpaulin looks very similar to the airdrops from PUBG or Game of Peace.

The official Twitter account of Tesla China finally brought light into the darkness on Monday morning. An animated video shows the dropping of the box in front of the factory. It also displayed the transport of the box to Shanghai’s Taikoo Hui Center.

The transport happened in real life as well just a few hours after the video was published. The video then reveals what can be found inside the crate.
