Tesla: ‘Nice Try’ easter egg

March 14 will see the big reveal of the Tesla Model Y. The teaser invite they sent out doesn’t reveal much. Those who apply their photoshop skills, to glean a sneak peek, will only get an early ‘easter egg’ for their troubles.

And if that wasn’t cheeky enough, they also hid a nod to a popular videogame on their site:

  1. Go to the https://www.tesla.com/modely.
  2. Click Notify Me. A registration form for the Livestream will appear.
  3. Press F12 (Developer Tools) and click Console.
  4. In the todo: reveal video area, click the link.

Fans of the Skyrim will recognize the scene.

With special thanks to Lady Di 

Cheers!

NYT:🤦‍♂️ Apple Slow to React to Facetime ‘Listen in’ Bug
