When technology attacks... the USPS is there

The US Postal Service is behind a new series of direct-to-internet webisodes called "Mark of the Eagle." The first episode (which stars actual postal employees) was posted to YouTube earlier this month.

In the episode, a shredder, an Internet cord and a copy machine, among other office equipment, attack the employees of a company called Middleman Industries.

According to a USPS press release, the webisodes are part of a campaign challenging customers to "take a new look" at Priority Mail, Express Mail and ground packages as "economical and dependable delivery options."
