(Radio.com) A mysterious package arrived at MTV's New York office on March 15 containing strange objects that appeared to tease a new Kanye West project. A white credit card bore the markings 'Kanye West," 'NASA," 'PROJECT-10," and '8/10." It was also branded with the numbers '772233688." The package contained another package (a box inside a box!) with a VHS tape labeled 'E PLURIBUS UNUM" and a pebble -- moon rocks?

Naturally, the editors didn't know what to make of the parcel but did some investigation. The serial number led them to a white noise video on YouTube. The VHS tape contained two hours of static. https://www.772233688.com/ directed to a site with more audio static and the date March 20, this Monday. Let's just say it had all the makings of a bizarre promotional effort.

Def Jam spokespeople replied to requests for comment with two statements. The first email said, 'That sounds really weird and suspiciously like a hoax." A NASA representative said markings on the logo were retired in 1992. The second Def Jam statement affirmed that the box is, in fact, a hoax. Read more here.
