Relive the epic 2012 Playstation commercial depicting Cubs winning World Series

Finally, the day all of Cubdom has waited more than a year for is here.

The Cubs' road to the World Series begins Friday night with Game 1 of the National League Division Series against the San Francisco Giants.

So what better time than to envision what it would be like if the Cubs actually won it all?

The championship drought has hit 108 years, but this 2016 team is considered the favorites to win the World Series this fall, complete with the top record in baseball in the regular season and probably the most talented roster in the postseason.

[SHOP: Gear up, Cubs fans!]

Dare to dream.

That's what the producers of the 2012 Playstation commercial did. 

In a minute-long ad for MLB 12 The Show, the video game company depicts Chicago celebrating a World Series championship at long last...before zooming out to reveal it was just a video game played by a tearful Chicagoan in his apartment just underneath the L.

Hard to argue with the vision, though. Especially right now, as the Cubs are about to embark on a potentially historic postseason run.

Get hyped.

Cubs Talk Podcast: Cubs offense takes a step in right direction, when will rotation follow?

For the first time in almost two weeks, the Cubs offense started to look more like the team we know they can be in Wednesday afternoon's victory over the Brewers. But when will the starting rotation follow? Kyle Hendricks pitched better than his stat line once again, but it's getting late in the season to continue to use that rationale for any Cubs starter.

Kelly Crull and Tony Andracki break down the Cubs-Brewers series and Kelly sits down with David Bote for a 1-on-1 chat about his whirlwind week. Leila Rahimi also catches up with MLB Network's Dan Plesac to get his thoughts on Javy Báez's place in the NL MVP race, how the Central division is shaping up and X-factors for the Cubs and Brewers down the stretch.
