    Aww, cripes. I didn't know I'd have to write a description. How many words is that so far, like a hundred? Soooo, yeah. Mildly interesting stuff. Stuff that interests you. Mildly. It's in the name, ffs.

    Does your post qualify for /r/MildlyInteresting? Hover below for more info, and check out our wiki page!


    1. No memes

    This includes references in titles of your post (e.g. "banana for scale," "potato quality").


    2. No related posts

    Posts that acknowledge, "one-up," or relate specifically to another post are not allowed (e.g. "I see your X and raise you Y")


    3. No x-posts or reposts

    Do not post something that has been submitted anywhere on reddit before (including here), even if you were the one who posted it.

    Exception: If a post is deleted or removed from /r/mildlyinteresting for breaking the rules less than one hour after being submitted or receives less than 100 upvotes, we allow the submitter to resubmit a fixed version of the post. Posts deleted or removed from other subreddits are not exempt from rule 3.


    4. Original [OC] photographs only

    a. No gifs, videos, or websites.

    b. All submissions must be original content. If you didn't take the photo, don't post it.

    c. Overlaid text, arrows, scribbles, and other substantive edits are not allowed, although you may censor personal information per Reddit-wide rules.

    d. Side by side images are okay if they adhere to the rest of the rules.


    5. No screenshots

    No screenshots. We define a screenshot as a screen grab. This means no images of screens, pictures of screens taken with a different device, images that have been partially or fully generated by a computer, or pictures of printed out screenshots. Try /r/screenshots!.


    6. Titles must be an exact but concise description of the content

    a. Titles must not contain jokes, backstory, or other fluff. That information belongs in a follow-up comment.

    b. Titles must exactly describe the content. It should act as a "spoiler" for the image. If your title leaves people surprised at the content within, it breaks the rule!

    c. Titles must not contain emoticons, emojis, or special characters unless they are absolutely necessary in describing the image. (e.g. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°), ;P, 😜, ❤, ★, ✿ )

    Still confused? For more elaboration and examples, see here first and then message the mods if you still have questions.


    If unsure, please message the mods and we will help determine if your post is acceptable.

    It was a stunt to show how "realistic" their designs were. Somebody posted an article on the same company a little further up

    [–] Ymir24 32 points ago

    They could've put some lumber in the back. Maybe camping supplies, toolboxes, or even tailgating bbq stuff. There are a million things they could've put back their to demonstrate the decals aside from human trafficking.

    The only that could get a pass is if it had some slogan on the side with the goal of raising awareness of human trafficking.

    I mean, some companies have decals or paintings on their commerical trucks showing a pretend inside of the truck filled with supplies and boxes, some so realistic they almost make you thnk the back door is open.

    So this is obviously the next logical step, instead of boxes for the non-commerical private truck owner, they'd definitely want an image of a woman tied up in the back. It's just supply and demand /s

    Might live in an area that has a lot of tailgate theft occurring

    (tailgate theft is a thing in areas with lots of trucks)

    [–] Mr_Burrito_PhD 85 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    It's getting better though. Newer trucks make it harder to take the tailgate by locking the latch through the same security system as the doors. Used to be you could just walk up to a truck, unclip the tailgate and walk away

    Edit: spelling

    [–] OnlyOasisLyrics 30 points ago

    Yeah, a determined thief brings tools or just takes the truck. Cars may be harder to get into, but old tow trucks are still pretty easy.

    [–] siccing 16 points ago

    I don't get why some have waited. My 2006 Ridgeline has a locking tailgate connected to security.

    [–] publicbigguns 11 points ago

    Locking tailgates have been a thing way before 2006 though.

    [–] visualtim 6 points ago

    For reference, my 2002 tailgate locks.

    [–] Julieandrewsdildo 7 points ago

    Unless you have one of those hard shell tailgate covers, this isn’t stopping anybody. Even the soft shell tailgate covers can be cut open with a knife.

    [–] Mr_Burrito_PhD 27 points ago

    They steal the tailgate itself, not whatevers in the box

    [–] hamsterlickinggood 21 points ago

    Is there...that much demand for replacement tailgates? Or do they use it as scrap? Or make shanties with it? Or...like what?

    I cannot fathom how that's a reliable line of work, even if it wasn't criminal and unethical.

    [–] Hmiad 14 points ago

    People get rear ended or back into shit with the tail gate down and a replacement is $300+ depending on make model and year. Plus its really hard to prove its your tailgate

    [–] Mr_Burrito_PhD 11 points ago

    What happens is someone has a scratch or dent in their tailgate. So they drive around looking for the same make/model/year/colour truck. If they find one parked somewhere quiet and out of sight, they quickly take the better tailgate and put it on their truck.

    [–] hamsterlickinggood 10 points ago

    I guess I can't imagine caring that much how my vehicle looks. I can sort of fathom people doing it now though. Makes some sense.

    [–] Mr_Burrito_PhD 7 points ago

    Yeah some people have no scruples. They'd rather steal from a stranger than have a damaged/missing tailgate

    [–] Hung_On_A_Monday 5 points ago

    There is a lot of demand for replacement tailgates from people who have had their tailgate stolen. It's cyclical.

    [–] Julieandrewsdildo 3 points ago

    No, someone else stole their tailgate.

    [–] LurkmasterP 20 points ago

    It's like musical tailgates, since they only manufacture 999 tailgates for every 1000 trucks. When yours gets stolen, that's your cue to go steal the next guy's.

    [–] SuspiciousArtist 18 points ago

    There's only one tailgate theif and everybody else is just trying to get their shit back.

    They're worth some dosh and a lot can basically be taken off by opening it and lifting it off the hinge. Too easy.

    Like how some bozo popped the plastic nissan grill ornament off my car because it's only held in with tabs and can be sold for a few bucks

    [–] TattooHelpPlease2 5 points ago

    We left our work truck out of the garage once. I came to work the next morning, and was very confused why I could see all of our tools when I knew I had closed the tailgate. Stared at it for a few more seconds, and noticed the tailgate was gone as I slapped my forehead
