Astronaut in Apple Store

An astronaut walks into the Apple Store… it sounds like the start of a bad joke, but that’s what we’re seeing here. There isn’t much context, so it could be a pre-Halloween costume or just some sort of prank to further test the limits of Apple Store policy, but the picture was taken about a week ago by James Nord, who uploaded it to Tumblr with the amusing tagline:

“Welcome to the future, everything is extraordinary and nobody cares.”

Extraordinary, indeed. An astronaut may not be the strangest thing spotted in an Apple Store though, last year a miniature horse was seen next to a Genius Bar.

For those wondering, it looks like he’s using a MacBook Pro…

Update: This was apparently at the 14th St Apple Store in NYC for a Mini Coupe (yes, the car) promo, thanks for the heads up @kilsey
