Postal Service Dresses Mailboxes Like R2-D2

Posted on Thursday, March 15th, 2007 4:43 PM. Last Updated on Sunday, March 18th, 2007 3:38 PM by Scott Jentsch

USA Today has a story about a new promotion being done by the United States Postal Service, where mailboxes in 200 cities across the nation will be wrapped in a covering depicting the droid R2-D2 from the Star Wars movies.

It's part of a promotion for a new stamp to be announced March 28, said Anita T. Bizzotto, the post office's chief marketing officer.

"It's a little teaser for the upcoming announcement and we decided to have a little fun with it," she said.

There's no mention whether the boxes will make high-pitched whistles and beeps when you approach, or if letter carriers will get into the spirit and wear gold foil and pick on the mailboxes every chance they have.
