R2D2 handles your mail
Yahoo News has blown the pants off the USPS’ latest promotional gimmick, as it teams with Lucasfilm on March 28th, the 30th anniversary of the release of the first Star Wars movie, to remake some mailboxes in a familiar image.
About 400 mailboxes in 200 cities across the country will be wrapped in a special covering to make them look something like the droid R2D2 (judge for yourself at right).
The post office isn’t saying which ones, but they have a somewhat tepid teaser about the event.
The pants references above? If you’ve never played Star Wars Pants, you’re really missing something. Let’s hope it’s not those trousers, or I’d find your lack of pants disturbing.
(And if you didn’t catch the Annie Leibovitz photos from the Star Wars edition of Vanity Fair two years ago, they’re making the rounds again… love the group shot!)
