The bookstore chain cleverly put together a video featuring a man named "Jon Owls" describing the new Ornithological Waterstones Landing Service (or OWLS).
"OWLS consists of a fleet of specially trained owls that, either working individually or as an adorable team, will be able to deliver your package within 30 minutes of you placing your order,” explains Owls in a video.
Like Amazon's future fleet, Jon Owls admits that Waterstone's feathered fleet will take some time to develop "as it takes ages to train owls to do anything and we only just thought of it this morning."
Check out the great video below.
