Yahoo! Mailbox Delivers Funny Quips and Gifts to Passersby

To promote their upgraded mail service -- which you can learn about on Facebook -- Yahoo! has made some pretty funny videos featuring a very large purple mailbox, aka the Purple People Greeter.

In the clips the mailbox greets and chats up people walking by in New York City, and even offers them some very nice mail, including flowers, cash, Yankees tickets and even iPads! Check it out:

The Purple People Greeter also did its thing in Chicago, delivering gifts and cracking jokes to by-standards. Watch that one, too...

Clever, huh? Love people's interactions with the giant mailbox.
