The latest is this video by the team at FinalCutKing, showing off "Amazon Rockets - 5 Minute Shipping". For those who think 30 minutes is way too long to wait for a package:

On Monday, we saw this video from the folks at Waterstones, promising delivery by owl - sort of a Harry Potter parody that's quick on the joke but not much in terms of a true parody.
