Tesla fans hoping to get a sneak preview of the upcoming Model Y electric SUV, which will be revealed on March 14, were treated to a spectacular Easter egg when they tried to run a teaser image of the vehicle through an image editor.
At first glance, the teaser image sent to event attendees like YouTuber Marques Brownlee (MKBHD) doesn’t reveal much about the Model Y.
So Brownlee ran the cloaked image through iOS’s built-in image editor to see if he could uncover any details by brightening up the picture.
In true Tesla fashion, the company anticipated people trying to do just that and included… well just see for yourself:
Hidden within the shadows of the Model Y teaser image is a “NICE TRY” message waiting for sleuths.
Others have tried using different image editors, but no dice. Same deal.
You can sorta get a better outline of the Model Y, but not really. It looks like a the silhouette of a Model 3.
Well played, Tesla. Well friggin’ played. Whoever thought of this clever hidden message deserves a raise. Guess we’ll all just have to wait a few more days until the Model Y’s proper unveil.
