18 GTA5 Boxart Hidden Details

Every time Rockstar Games releases official boxart for the next Grand Theft Auto game it's a big news. And every single site or blog, official or not, has the same response ... the biggest picture of the cover they can find. Unfortunately because everybody in such rush to be the first tell the world about it, nobody pays any  attention to what they're posting.

Luckily there was an eagle eyed gamer who spotted 18 amazing details hidden within the boxar for GTA5 many people definitely missed. It was too big not to share.
This box art contains over a dozen secret hidden details. I've found them all by getting right up close to my monitor and noting down what I saw using my Pukka notepad and a pen I stole from EA.
1. Hel(icopter) Is Other People.
This helicopter has the number 340 on the front and is shooting bullets and rockets out of its guns. It is bluish grey in colour.

2. What A Gas.
This is somebody wearing a gas mask. The first of such masks was invented in 1847, but this one looks fairly new.

3. Motorbikes Is What I Likes.
Another vehicle confirmed: this motorbike. It's got a man on top with a bag that's probably full of drugs. He's probably escaping from the men who own the drugs.

4. We Need To Talk About Kevin.
Keen-eyed readers will have spotted television's Kevin Eldon looking a little miffed to the right of the game's logo.

5. Name of the Game.
The game's name (Grand Theft Auto V-Five) can be spotted just to the very middle of the box art if you look very carefully.

6. Lady With The Nice Face.
Look at this lady with the nice face. Make you wonder if she just got a text message. If she had, perhaps it was one of those ones about PPI, ohh, don't you hate those?

7. Feelin Woof.
There's a dog, right here, where the arrow is pointing.

8. Water Wonderful World.
This person is riding a jet-ski called a Speedophile 2000. Do you get it? It sounds like paedophile. Classic! How do they come up with such clever names for the things in their game?

9. Look We Really Need To Talk About Kevin Have You Got a Minute?
Have I done Kevin Eldon already? Sorry.

10. Back in Black
Hidden beneath a yellow "R square" is this black car that you can probably drive in the game. I'm no car expert, but this car looks like a fast car because of its large "front hole".

11. The Po-Po (Police).
The policemen are the main antagonists of the Grand Theft Auto games, and will do anything in their power to stop Johnny Crimes, the series' main character. This is subtly referenced in the box art with this police car, right here. Can you see it?

12. I Made This.
This yellow glyph represents the people who wrote the game with their magic game writing pens: Rhyl Sealife Aquarium. A big round of applause for them, I think, as they have done such a good job on their game.

13. Today Is The First Day of The Rest of My Life.
The main character (Johnny Crimes) can be seen here holding a gun that he intends to drop off at his local gun amnesty centre. Fate has something else in store for him however when he must shoot a pram out of the way of an oncoming truck: an act that gives him one police star and kicks off the events of Grand Theft Auto V-Five.

14. I Could Have Been Anything I Wanted.
The dog's name is Chop. In Grand Theft Auto V-Five you will be able to name any dogs you encounter by taking an Instagram picture of them and uploading them with the caption "What do you think guys? I think this one looks like a 'Catherine' :3"

15. I Fought The Law And The Law Won and Set a Precedent Regarding The Sale of Dead Pets Over the Internet.
This bad boy is trademarked, so don't even think of calling your videogame "Grand Theft Auto V-Five". It's taken already, girls.

16. What Is This? A Penis and Balls?
Brilliant. Terrific!

17. Brown Shoes, What Are Those, Timberland?
Some nice shoes on this character here. Probably going to be shoes in this game. I'll bet my own shoes that there will be shoes in this game.

18. Enter The Game Grid.
The digital version of the box art appears to made up of a grid of individual coloured pixels which, when viewed from a distance, forms the overall impression of the image. Each pixel is the size of the game grid from Tron.
