I want to be mad at Apple because they’re making me feel so many feelings for the sake of pitching laptops or whatever, but this ad is just too sweet to resent.

Have you done this? Would you?
I don’t know what’s in the air at Target, but it’s practically impossible to make a quick trip to that store.

How do we explain this phenomenon!? [22 Words]
