Copying an original—and making it better: check out this delightful Xerox commercial featuring monks

Those of us who are Of A Certain Age remember

this classic Xerox ad
 from the 1970s featuring monks. It aired during the Super Bowl in 1977 and caused a sensation.

Now, it’s been updated for the the 21st century. And it’s just sublime.
