Earlier this year, Martha Stewart empathized with those of us who aren’t so crafty or skilled at cooking and entertaining by recommending an alternative: Postmate It. 

A series of humorous spots from Mother L.A. illustrated how clueless Millennials in sticky situations can easily turn to the delivery platform when their meal-making endeavors go awry. (Like when your oddball roommate decides to devour all your eggs).

Other spots depict an office worker who decides to grill (at her desk), and a woman still pining over her ex while attempting to make a Greek salad. 




The spots are set to debut next week, but Postmates decided to treat its users via email to a special preview of the ads, complete with “cute” graphics teasing the scenarios within:
