A YouTuber woke up Saturday morning to discover a cat stuck inside the rear bumper of his Tesla . We get our first sneak peek at the company's upcoming fully-electric crossover SUV. From Our VICE Partners. Pure, uncut internet.

It wouldn't unlatch, meaning the car couldn't move, meaning he was effectively stuck . If he'd lived in San Francisco instead of Michigan he might have gotten quicker service, but Tesla did promptly fly someone from Minneapolis to his home last night.

  This is what happens when a cat gets stuck in the bumper of your Tesla © Screengrabs via S U/YouTube A YouTuber who goes by the name S U woke up on Saturday, ambled out to the garage, and suddenly heard a meow. Which is weird, because S U doesn’t have a cat.

Ultimately, he discovered that a cat somehow found its way into the rear bumper of his Tesla and had no way to actually escape the vehicle. Watch as S U tries to figure out what to do next.

Good luck taking off your own Tesla bumper with your tools at home. Instead, S U drove to the Tesla service center where a mechanic dutifully rescued the kitty in semi-dramatic fashion.

That's pretty darned dangerous in the worst case, because all of those parts are right next to your face when you're shooting, and your arm is kind of wrapped up in there. Blown barrels can cause severe injuries, though I've never heard of it happening on a properly-smithed, properly-operated gun.

Sweet video. Even if it’s not exactly like a firefighter rescuing a feline from a tree, the mechanic made a nice save—and didn’t even have to damage the car in the process.

Diplo teams up with Katy Perry on American Idol revival .
DJ Diplo is working with his rumoured ex Katy Perry on the upcoming American Idol revival. Last month (May17) the Roar singer landed a historic multi-million dollar gig as a judge on the reality TV singing competition, reportedly picking up $25 million (£19 million) to advise wannabes. And Diplo, who was romantically linked to Katy in 2014, has been working alongside his former flame by participating in active discussions with American Idol bosses. “I’ve also been talking to American Idol on the side to try to help them with the (ABC network reboot) with Katy," he tells Billboard, without providing further details about his role on the show. "I just like the idea of working with them. They’re cool," he added. Diplo, real name Thomas Wesley Pentz, has been involved in a number of projects of late - in addition to working on music with his band Major Lazer, the business savvy 38-year-old also runs record label Mad Decent, writes music for the likes of Beyonce and Madonna, and invests his money in big-time tech companies like Snapchat and Tesla. But Diplo has been concentrating a lot of his energy on television lately - a series about his life, called What Would Diplo Do? - starring James Van Der Beek, was recently picked up and executives at America's NBC network have also given a competition show idea of his the go-ahead. The multi-talented musician appreciates all of the opportunities because he's trying to emulate his late idol David Bowie. “I go to Vegas, and every dude is the exact same guy,” Diplo explains. “Every DJ looks exactly like The Chainsmokers! So freeing up my image is really important to me. That’s what Bowie did. Every f**king four months the guy was like a new human being.
