The duo met Elon Musk in 2015 at the Minecraft convention Minecon in London, and since then, they wanted to create a Tesla & Minecraft project. They saw the opportunity when Tesla announced 'Project Loveday', a video contest where fans from around the globe are asked to create an ad-like video. The winners will win a chance to attend the launch of one of upcoming Tesla's products.

The 51-second video shows the Tesla Model 3 replica in six custom-created environments. The duo said that their project involved a lot of stressful, sleepless nights, but they are happy with the result.
