this its not real ...its just propaganda...you are TV news why dont let see the real story not just happy eveniment. We all know nothing its perfect.... the perfection most be finde with practice. So next time please say true story no propaganda....FedEx and other company have their own publicity marketing.

Maybe next time take notes on the actual names of the people who helped you, instead of guessing. OR, don't show their names and then say them wrong?! Ha!

"I place the pies securely in one designated area of my truck" shouldn't have bothered when they ended up at 2:49

FedEx is the only shipping company I trust. UPS and USPS both have a passion for losing my fucking packages. FedEx just gets it right each time.

I work at fedex and ain't no way that pie isn't gonna make it in one piece
Alan Kennedy (17 days ago)
What you don't seem to realize, is that Fedex, UPS, etc, and this sorting facilities, are light years compared to what others such as i am have in their own country. So enjoy motherfuckers. You should. And let's not even mention Amazon's picking robots....
Shadi Nachat (17 days ago)
If they weren't being fillmed that pie would be in 84747484783 peices
JohnnyWad309 (17 days ago)
All of you comparing Fedex, USPS, Amazon, and UPS, but what you don't realize is USPS actually ends up delivering a lot of Fedex, Amazon, and UPS' shit for them. Usually the smaller parcels, but we receive huge bags of shit from them multiple times a day every day.

Watching all those packages tumble and fall all over each other waiting to be sorted just gives me anxiety. You let medical equipment get tossed around like that? Jeez.

Is there not a decent bakery on the entire island? If the pie causes orgasms then I could see justifying the price, but come on.

Well, I used to work at one of these shipping centers. To say the package handling in this video was sugar coated, is an understatement.

That pie came in 1 piece because ABC News was behind it.. or else that pie would be tossed across the warehouse like a Frisbee 😎

you guys have no idea how stressed we get during the peak season. 6 day work weeks for 12 hours a day has an effect on your mental health. after a while it drives you mad and you don't see packages as people's stuff anymore. it becomes more of an object then a belonging. to ensure the best shipping experience, make sure your shipments have strong sturdy packaging with FLAT, CLEAN, UNCOVERED shipping labels, chances of any damage/delay will be MUCH lower.

That pie would have been fucked up and smashed, thrown around if not on this TV show. FUck em

r u serious ur gonna eat a pie not refrigerated for days
jeffw1267 (2 months ago)
It pisses me off that some people will just DIE if they don't receive their parcels before Christmas. In this case we're talking about a fucking PIE. It's not life-saving medication or organs for transplant. Don't be paying Express prices to get stuff there before Christmas. Who gives a shit if your parcel comes a few days after Christmas? Just call the recipient and tell 'em it might be a little late. I think getting parcels after Christmas is great! The holiday ends; all the fun is over and you have to go back to work. Then you get another gift in the mail! I love it.

This is a 'clean and edited' version. Its all the same btw. Fed Ex/UPS/USPS. Same method. There is a reason why shipment is so cheap.
Ghana Mafia (2 months ago)
No wonder why fedex drivers look fed up with life. This field of work is not easy....and I'm sure they don't get paid well enough to put up with this nonsense. One day, everyone will have a drone to deliver their own stuff. Life is too short to be this hectic.

Anton Shadyrya (2 months ago)
That is really impressive!! Not to downplay how amazing today's logistics are, but DANG that's a huge load of carbon released so that someone can eat pie... it seems it would be better to just make it yourself from local ingredients. An interesting question I would have fun discussing: just because something is possible (this), should we do it?!

Well this isnt really correct, the pie wasnt delivered like all the other packages but instead that ceo guy or whatever brought it to most places, so in reality the pies would have been in hawaii later but who gives a fuck, its a fucking pie
Rusty Nail (2 months ago)
Be sure to always say a real from the heart thank you to all the delivery people . these men and women work extremely hard and long hours to get packages where they're needed to be in a timely fashion.
