    Since it's a dutch video: They are saying they are going to give a Roadster away, the sportscar of the future and 100% electric.

    And also the making of:



    Judging by the license plates and the style of the buildings, I'd guess this video was not recorded in the Netherlands.

    First reaction: How the h***?! But the "making of" video at 0:53 indeed shows the (partial) name of the "*elodroom" shop across the road. Nice work Inspector TEG!

    I get a lot of 'mileage' out of finding partial names in the backgrounds of scenes and guessing what they might say.

    (I was tempted to just give the street name without the tie-in to leave you guessing, but opted to give away my 'secret'.)

    By the way, there was a partial sign in the back of the Model S Alpha first drive video too...

    It's on TV over and over, good thing to see! I might give it a try, winning a Roadster would be nice :)

    And of course it's a good promotion for electric driving, now people now what i'm driving ... "the sportscar of the future" ... That makes it easier for them ;-)

    And indeed, I don't watch television very often but I've seen it like 2 times today.
