Rachel Nussbaum—Feeling down in the dumps? Bored out of your mind? We've all been there. Turns out the best cure is simply cueing up this commercial for Nature Rx, a fantastic spoof of most drug ads on TV. Part The Onion, part John Oliver, and 100 percent fantastic, the video makes a strong case for closing your computer and venturing into the great outdoors, “a non-harmful medication shown to relieve the crippling symptoms of modern life.” If you're unable to stop quoting it, we don't blame you. It’s just that good. Even if you choose to stay indoors and simply laugh along, "work-induced catatonia" doesn't stand a chance.
