Sometimes I feel like this job just keeps getting stranger and stranger. Today is no expection.

Over the years we have gotten plenty of strange guerilla marketing materials in the mail from both AMD and NVIDIA. Apparently, this is one of those days.

After reciving just a tracking number, and no additional information from NVIDIA earlier this week, the mystery package finally arrived today. Upon initial inspection we had no idea what to expect.

When we opened the box, we were greeted by a polystyrene cooler with the logo of Bake Me a Wish, which only served to confuse us more.

As we opened the cooler, and the subsequent box inside of it, things started to make more sense.

Inside the box, we were greeted by a chocolate cake, accompanied by a card from NVIDIA.

As you may remember at this year's GTC Conference, NVIDIA announced that they had ported Valve's Portal to Android and would be releasing it for SHIELD. Today we were greeted with a reminder of that, and the message that we should be able to try it for ourselves.
