As winter weather approaches, Domino’s is testing a new way to deliver their pizza to customers: by reindeer.

The chain released a video that shows employees in Japan leading a reindeer around a parking lot with boxes of pizza on its back. Once the program is officially launched, the animals will be equipped by a GPS tracker, and employees will be able to monitor their progress via smartphone. Working with Research Center of Hokkaido, Domino’s will be able to make sure the animals are safe and that they’re carrying only as much weight as they can handle for as far a distance as they can handle.

This is all in effort to combat snowy weather, making it possible for hungry customers to get their food even if roads are blocked by snow. If all goes well, reindeer deliveries are expected to start in Japan on Dec. 1.
