Mystery Package: Unboxing!

August 7, 2013 ♥ Posted in: Nerd Topics, YouTube videos by Kristina Horner

While I was away at VidCon, my roommate texted me saying a large ominous black box had arrived in the mail for me… from Taco Bell. This box; we’re talking big. It’s big enough to hold at least six puppies comfortably, or thirty pairs of shoes, or at least two hundred soft tacos.

Being that I was gone for almost a week though, I really desperately hoped two hundred soft tacos hadn’t been rotting in my swelteringly hot bedroom. Here’s the unboxing video I filmed as soon as I got home:

I’m not exactly sure how or when it happened, but Taco Bell has sort of become that super weird best friend you can’t quite remember how you met but are glad you get to hang out with on a regular basis anyway. I met their head marketing guy at VidCon (he was incredibly nice), and was super impressed with their t-shirt printing booth. Did anyone see my friends walking around with those stupid tees with my face on them? Thanks a lot for that, Taco Bell.  -_-

Anyway, the last thought I want to end on is that… sometimes I forget how weird my life is. Being a YouTuber for as long as I have starts to desensitize you to it – and the weirdness starts to become normal. For instance, Liz came home to this Doritos photo shoot happening in my room last night and she didn’t even bat an eye. “Oh course Justin is taking pictures of Kristina while she’s covered in bags of Doritos,” Liz thought as she arrived home from work. “Can’t wait to help her eat all of those Doritos,” was her only reaction.


What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever received in the mail? One time a friend of mine sent me a postcard from a road trip she was on that was entirely made out of tree bark, but I think ten bags of chips has stolen first place for me. Leave a comment and let me know!

I remember returning home from a week in San Francisco, and someone had sent me a package filled with 1) glitter 2) a book of Edgar Allen Poe poetry 3) raven-themed stationery 4) an Edgar Allen Poe pin

I wasn’t expecting it so when opening the box glitter got everywhere on the floor of my apartment. It was still there when I moved out, even though I had vacuumed like three times. I eventually found who it was from, and I think I yelled at him every time I saw him for a year thereafter because my floor had been glittered.

So you know what it’s like to be me, then! Hahaha! Glitter for days and days thanks to my PO Box.

What an excellent thing to come home to! A giant box of Doritos. Your friends getting those shirts made is pretty epic.

I don’t really think I’ve had anything really weird in the mail, but my mom did send me a care package full of tights and chapstick while I was studying abroad. (Couldn’t find any tights that fit me and the chapstick in the country I was in was super expensive). Not weird for me but to other people that might seem weird!

Emma says:

Wow! So many different flavours! Why can we not get all those in the U.K. They look so good! 🙁

As for the strangest thing I have been sent in the mail… I would say my Mum sending my retainer to me at university was pretty interesting. I was also randomly sent a free can of red bull but thats not quite as interesting as ten bags of Doritos!

Thea says:

I don’t get a lot of packages, but during my semester in Istanbul my family sent me a fleece pair of Pooh Bear pajama pants. Not that interesting, I guess. One of my favorite discoveries in Istanbul was actually the Taco-flavored Doritos. Although they do carry them in the U.S., most stores don’t carry them here.
