When you’re a celebrity, it’s tough to leave your house without being approached by fans. David Dobrik can’t even seem to get privacy in his own home.
In May, an intruder appeared on the YouTuber’s lawn, and he had to calmly ask the man to leave, which he eventually did.
In early October, Dobrik found an abandoned kitten on his doorstep in a duffel bag. Security footage revealed that a stranger had left it there, but the person could not be identified.
The mysterious encounters just keep coming. On Oct. 24, Dobrik shared a video to TikTok of a drone flying onto his property carrying a bag of food from Chipotle — along with an unnerving note.
“Bro, this is so scary. Someone flew f****** Chipotle on a drone into my backyard,” Dobrik said in the video. “I’m not f****** kidding what if it’s a f****** bomb, what do I do?”
Dobrik and his unnamed friends took the items from the drone, which included a little green bag and a note.
“To get right to the point, you probably do not know who we are. But soon, the name Project better will be much more familiar,” the note read. “Thank you for being awesome, see you soon.”
It also included instructions for a potential meeting and a note about why the Chipotle order that was delivered was unusual.
“If you want to film it we’ll be at the nearest Chipotle on riverside with one picture on it,” the note said. “PS: the sauce is half-full because it was too heavy. Enjoy.”
Though the incident seemed to have simply been a creator’s attempt to get more attention for their project, commenters found the whole situation to be a bit eerie — and slammed Dobrik’s reaction to it.
“You shouldn’t have posted this … you’re giving people ideas,” one user wrote.
“Well done spreading the idea, tomorrow they’ll be 20 drones in his garden,” another said.
Whether or not the apparent publicity stunt actually worked remains to be seen — no one is quite sure what “Project Better” is yet.
