In this delightful French TV ad for La Poste, France's national postal service, a man demonstrates the process of mailing a letter online. He reads the instructions, clicks on "send via computer," and then, to his surprise, the computer turns into a spaceship and flies out the window. The simplicity of the concept and the way it's materialized is just great, a rarity in a world full of over-processed commercials.
