Stop the presses: As you’re reading this, there’s a Snap Spectacle vending machine just sitting at Dilworth Park next to the LOVE statue. Don’t believe us? Check right here.

And here:

Wondering what these trinkets are and how they work? So were we. Here’s a quick review from The Verge:

The machine, which will be on site for just a few hours until the devices run out, will be doling out the Snapchat-viewing goggles for $129,99 a pop. Dang.

If you feel like thanking anyone, word has it Visit Philadelphia had a little hand in getting the machine to Philly. To celebrate, the nonprofit rolled out a “With Love” geofilter around the Love Statue.

Visit Philadelphia launched its Snapchat account last summer. In 2016, Visit Philly geofilters reportedly had some four million views.
