Watch: Amusing Animated Sci-Fi Delivery Man Short 'JohnnyExpress'
Something fun to brighten up your Friday - an animated short film about a lazy and careless delivery man. The short is titled JohnnyExpress from animator Kyungmin Woo, about Johnny, a "Space Delivery Man who travels to different planets to deliver packages" but is lazy, prefers to sleep and just use autopilot. The animation is great, but of course there's a poignant message behind this which, even though it's set 136 years in the future, still applies to today. The animation house behind this is Alfred Imageworks, a motion graphic studio based in Korea - see more of their videos. Need a laugh? This short will do the trick. Enjoy!

However, it never goes as planned. Johnny encounters strange and bizarre planets and always seems to cause trouble on his delivery route. Will he be able to finish his mission without trouble?"
