Things can get lonely in a galaxy far, far away, so R2D2 has come to ours in search of love.

Sure, shiny, precocious gold bros are fun, but sometimes you need something more intimate … something more cylindrical.

In Evan Atherton’s video “Artoo in Love,” the famous booping Star Wars droid has found just that with a San Francisco mailbox. It’s love at first sight for R2D2, who wines and dines the bow-wearing box throughout the clip.

While USPS workers promise to deliver through rain or shine, sleet or snow, USPS mailboxes are a little more fickle. Soon, R2D2 finds his babe has moved on to another love.

Lost and dejected, R2D2 goes back to rolling down the boardwalk, where he comes across his pink counterpoint.

R2, this is the droid you’re looking for.
