All's Well That Doesn't End Well in Romantic Comedy From Sears Fun fake trailer wraps with a splat

Here's a fun trailer for a romantic comedy about two lost souls (bloggers, obviously) who reconnect in an airport … with a twist ending. Spoiler alert: Because love is a lot like hurtling headfirst into a giant stainless steel fridge. Also because there's a strong market for anti-rom-com schadenfreude. Especially when the convincing rom-com setup ends in classic slapstick pratfalls. Also because it made you laugh, now come on, buy at Sears. From mcgarrybowen in Chicago. It's a follow-up to the hugely popular beach commercial from the summer. Full credits after the jump.
