Every once in awhile, the universe just makes sense. Like when the turn signal of the car in front of you perfectly syncs up with the music you're listening to. Or when the number of chips you have perfectly matches the amount of salsa you scooped into a bowl. Or when you finish your hair conditioner at the same time as your shampoo. (LOL, just kidding about that last one; that has literally never ever happened.) When the universe gives you signs like that, you have to notice them. Like, really notice them. Maybe even tweet about them. That's exactly what Daniel Spenser did when he discovered one of the galaxy's most wonderful coincidences on a recent trip to Trader Joe's.
There's a lot to love about Trader Joe's. With a name like that, you know it's a store you can trust to provide you with a good time. (Otherwise, it'd be called Trader Joseph.)
If the name isn’t enough to convince you Trader Joe’s is cool, the fact that all of the employees wear Hawaiian shirts should quickly set your mind at ease. This place is fun and laid back.
Plus: Cookie Butter.
Do I really need to say more?
(If you’re tragically unfamiliar with the ambrosia that is cookie butter, it’s basically peanut butter except instead of peanuts, it’s cookies. And yes, it is amazing.)
But now, thanks to the eagle eyes of designer Daniel Spenser, there’s something new to love about your favorite grocery chain.
In order for this all to make sense, I'm gonna need you to open this video in another tab and listen to the song in the background as you continue reading.
It’s the only way this will work.
OK. Do you hear the dulcet tones of Paul McCartney? Good. Please continue:
Spenser noticed something amazing about a bunch of the food at Trader Joe's. Their names sync up perfectly with the musical phrase "Eleanor Rigby."
Go on, give it a try!
“Mini beef tacos.”
“Harvest whole wheat bread.”
“Fat free ricotta.”
This can’t be a coincidence.
If you can read this next tweet without humming the tune in your head, you are some kind of superhero:
You couldn’t do it, could you?
I knew it.
I know what you’re thinking. Spenser found the only four products in the store that just happened to work with the phrase “Eleanor Rigby.”
No, friend. There are more. So many more…
