If you were lucky enough to live through the 90’s, you know this commercial for air conditioning from Sears. A place that, in the 90’s, was kind of like if Home Depot suddenly decided to start selling clothes.

This escalates… quickly.
With summer on its way this also serves as an excellent reminder to start saving up for a new A/C unit. You have to beat the heat, or else the heat, well, it’ll beat you.
