Earlier today, we received a beautifully crafted, oh so mysterious, ceramic hand here at Gizmodo HQ. Who could it be from? What does it mean? Where does the website on the card take you? Who has the answers? We do! But we're sure as hell not going to tell you, 'cause fuck those guys.

Apparently, some agency thought they'd pique our interest with this little stunt—and they did! Though we know you're probably curious what the stunt was for, trust us—it's not worth it.

But hey, check out that hand. It looks like it came straight out of some old-timey carnival! And the accompanying note even claims it's an original [REDACTED] from the founder's [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED].

The weird thing, though, is that the website on the card, [REDACTED].com, is almost totally nonsensical. Obviously the [REDACTED] and the hand are connected, but what does it all mean?

Take your pick:

  • There is a terrible rideshare/dating/anonymous messaging/dogecoin app coming out that you don't want or need.
  • Someone made another godforsaken art project that is "powered by tweets."
  • A recent survey revealed that millennials have forgotten what it's like to know the touch of another human.

Or, most likely of all:

  • Some ad agency just wasted a whole lot of money sending out faux-aged ceramic hands to reporters.

A bit more background: The hand was addressed to me, and I was excited to receive a package at work. When I opened it and found a dirty ceramic hand, I was sure that there was a death threat attached to it (or some weird sex thing that I don't really want to image). Nope. It's just a dirty ceramic hand and a mystery. Happy Friday the 13th!
