Wait, did Pixar design the new USPS truck?

We've all heard of life imitating art, but what about life imitating animation?

Probably not the effect the USPS design team was going for, but amusing nonetheless.

USPS unveiled the new design this week, and has been universally mocked (or celebrated?) on social media, with comparisons flooding in between the sleek new design, Pixar-rendered vehicles, and even a Pixar dog. We totally see it, and love the personification. In fact, we've even wondered if USPS borrowed some tips from our character design guide.
