Useless Mailboxes Disguised As Helpful Robot Friends

In honor of Lucasfilm buying off the U.S. Postal Service for a promotional stunt, 400 mailboxes have been decorated with shrink wrap that vaguely resembles the possibly fictional droid R2D2. A few of these “Star Wars” mail receptacles will be placed in 200 cities so we can all dream of a postal service run by cute helpful tireless servants rather than surly incompetent civil servants.

USPS marketing director Anita T. Bizzotto “urged people not to tamper with them, noting that’s a crime.” Yes, only the U.S. Postal Service can legally tamper with the mailboxes by renting them out like billboards to the highest bidder.
