You'll watch now.


"'Nother scorcher!" (via YouTube)

If you grew up in the 90s and had a television, you'll remember the greatest commercial of all time. Just like the emergence of cicadas or the rancid stench of sun-baked garbage in New York City, the SEARS Kenmore air conditioning ad was one of the first signs of summer.

It's also a delightful cultural artifact of the roaring 1990s. Just look at this happy childless couple in the giant suburban home they probably own, spending their days watching their stock portfolio grow fat off the Clinton economy and their nights watching new episodes of Seinfeld. Just two kids livin' the American Dream™ (R.I.P.) without a care in the world except for one: central air conditioning.
