Did RJ just do a little happy dance while talking about the flashlight?

Not an official announcement, but those few full-screen color frames seem preeetty intentionally added. Did you miss them the first time? I did. I won't tell you how many times I watched it before noticing.

Yeah, I noticed those color samples too. Looks like the first hint of a red and black that we haven't seen before (well, I believe there was also a glimpse of a black shell in the building a test vehicle video). Looks like there may be a bright red similar to my current XC60.

Yeah, I took that as an official color reveal/tease. I wish they'd just show us some completed trucks in new colors already.

I love staged office footage. Like what are they actually doing with the swatches? We have one from our office where somebody's pointing at the single word "business" on a white board while the rest of the team looks very thoughtful. Actually made it to a pamphlet or the site IIRC.

The more I look at these videos the more impatient I get to get my R1S. The practical approach taken by Rivian is the real value add. I was taught 'Patience is a virtue' ....boy oh boy....it's put to the test now ! It's easier if forced to be patient than a choice. .

Weird, I didn’t get any email from Rivian about this video. Wish I could have watched it before it got taken down!

Rivian has re-posted the Episode Three video. However, as suspected it has been edited down as it is now 46 seconds shorter and modified from the original back on June 9th. E.g. noticed in the video that the white board the women is standing in front of is now blurred out. ;)

Added following to OP:

I also noted the whiteboard got a LOT blurrier haha

They made up for the accidental release by giving us clips of the "camo" R1T. Those weren't in the first version. Looks like they're really testing things!

YES! That was my main takeaway as well, and I loved the first mini clip around 0:18... Hauling *ss, and that suspension looks great!
