Fed up with waiting for a surly teenager to show up at your doorstep with a delicious pizza? Look to the future: Soon we may have drones flying through the sky to drop off your circle of cheesy bliss.

A video posted to Facebook by director Ryan Rhody shows just such an airborne apparatus delivering a pie from Mama’s Pizza in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It’s likely that this was all a viral stunt to get some eyes on Mama’s—if you call the restaurant now, they won’t actually be able to get your pizza to you via drone—but that doesn’t make it any less awesome. Because one day this could be reality.

With the news that Domino’s may also start rolling out pizza delivery robots, it’s an exciting time for pizza lovers. Though it’s still unclear whether or not we’ll have to tip these machines.
