How SHOOK would you be if you received a potato with Brendon Urie's face on it?
The Panic! At The Disco fandom is having an eventful album roll out season. Between all the hints leading up to "Say Amen" (Saturday Night) & "(Fuck A) Silver Lining", plus the special holy water packages delivered straight to the mailboxes of loyal fans, there certainly has been "no rest" for the devout followers of Panic! At The Disco.
Imagine going to check your mail and discovering an actual potato with Brendon Urie's face on it.

The potatoes are directing people to mysterypotato.com, an anonymous potato sending site that we never even knew existed until this precise moment.
It's official. People have...questions.

Of course, a few fans started wondering if their potatoes got lost in the mail.

But then the whole potato concept clicked.
I'm tired from work but just realized the key on her potato is the Devil's Key from the Say Amen (Saturday Night) video— Daicy Torres (@daicydisaster) April 23, 2018
Can't believe I didn't make the connection immediately, but just realized the potato idea must be from the Say Amen video!— Karina (@WaitASecondWhat) April 23, 2018
Okay, so here is everything we know about the potatoes:
via Fueled by Ramen
Panic! are back at it again, following another viral marketing exercise in March, where people received holy water bottles labelled "Pray For The Wicked".
Pray For The Wicked, Panic's 6th studio album, will be out June 22. The official Panic! At The Disco account has responded and WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!
you say potato, I say… https://t.co/y8RwEE30Vy— Panic! At The Disco (@PanicAtTheDisco) April 24, 2018
That's all we know so far. We're also acutely aware that potatoes are a rich source of vitamin C and potassium.
Anyway, we love marketing!
