In an effort to revamp its own floundering business model, the United States Post Office is unveiling a smear campaign against e-mail. They're releasing a set of ads that emphasize the possibility of digital hacking, reports theWashington Post.
“A refrigerator has never been hacked,” an announcer says in the first message as an actress pins a paper bill to her fridge.
In the other ad, a smiling letter carrier is seen walking her route while an announcer reminds viewers that hand-delivered messages ensure that “important letters and information don’t get lost in thin air, or disappear with a click.”
Yeah, nothing ever gets lost in the mail. And there is nothing more secure than sticking a paper envelope in a small, unlocked box in front of a house and walking away, after all.
