R2-D2 adorably falls in love with a mailbox in this super cute film

I can’t imagine anything cuter than R2-D2 trying to seduce someone—or in this case, something: A blue mailbox. He brings her flowers, performs the sweetest mating dance, watches movies with her, or even zaps away people who try to mail things.


But love is capricious and as Mick Jagger would say: “You can’t always get what you want.” Don’t worry pal, there are thousends of blue mailboxes out there waiting for an adorable droid like you.

Artoo in Love—directed, written, and edited by Evan Atherton—shows the romantic side of the cutest droid ever.

Artoo [. . .] the cuttest drone ever.

Aww, fuck it. Everything is a drone. You’re a drone. I’m a drone. This turkey bacon club sandwich is a drone.

Drone, drone, drone.

No. Artoo is not a “drone”. He’s a droid. There is a line. This aggression will not stand.
