Derelict House


The tape was sent to various media outlets in the USA just before the release of Resident Evil VII Biohazard, together with a VCR to play it on. The videos and labels on the tapes were personalized to the recipients.

The contents were shipped in a cardboard box. The VCR was wrapped in sheets of bubblewrap. The tape and video cables were packed in a bubblewrap mailer. The VCR machines included were not the same in each package.

There may also have been some generic tapes just labeled "Get this out there!" with a similar message during the usually personalized part in the video.
