Adobe and Hasan Minhaj are here to liberate employees from the spatial and environmental confines of lethal and clunky office supplies. And they are channeling an oft-memed, cult classic film to do it—while simultaneously marking a milestone anniversary for the software giant’s most famous invention: The Acrobat PDF.

In “I Love you, Adobe,” the award-winning comedian, actor, producer, political commentator and television host confidently strolls through office cubicles introducing workers to a new way of working, sliding tablets on their desks and declaring “No more stickies, Jeremy,” saving another worker from cutting her tongue licking envelopes and teaching them how to “e-sign.”

This was really, really fun.
