No one went hungry during the making of the Postmates “This Is Your Brain on Food” campaign, with takeout orders of hot chicken, soup dumplings, boba tea and more crave-worthy dishes inspiring the creative and fueling the workday.

The campaign, with animated shorts in varying styles, showed off Postmates’ quirky personality, differentiating it from parent company Uber Eats and highlighting its relationships with restaurant partners.
