That placement gives credence to the the Wall Street Journal's belief that the locker is part of a promotional event that will take place later today.

Amazon does have a history with oversized boxes, delivering a Nissan Versa Note in a giant Amazon box to a customer earlier this year. Either Amazon is planning something big, or it has taken its hassle-free packaging approach to an entirely new level.
