Most Accurate Commercial Ever Explains When and Where Guys Buy Valentine's Day Gifts

Spoiler Alert: CVS (According to 'SNL')

If you need a bit of a reprieve from thinking about Super Bowl commercials, well, here: Watch this spot-on spot about when and where guys shop for Valentine's Day gifts.

The odd thing about it is that, even though it's obviously entirely serious and 100% accurate, you can hear a live studio audience laughing in the background. I suppose that might have something to do with it having aired during this past weekend's "Saturday Night Live." Still, the laughter doesn't detract from the fact that this is practically a documentary, this spot.
