What If Amazon Did Yesterday Shipping?

Recent news suggests that Amazon is planning to launch same-day shipping in the US — a first for online retail and perhaps the end of local stores as we know them. But what if Amazon worked out how to bend physics and developed yesterday shipping?

Obviously that’s insane, but the idea of Amazon pushing the boundaries of delivery in such a way is an amusing concept. That’s why Ben Stadler put together this comedy video, along with Archer’s Animation.

Of course, it’s unlikely — although perhaps not entirely impossible — that Amazon would ever end up with a prediction engine that knew exactly what you were going to buy and when. But then, given what happens in the video, maybe that’s best avoided altogether. [Ben Stadler]
