IKEA Heights: Flatpack Melodrama

leave a comment »

Everyone has a love hate relationship with IKEA. Sure, all your friends have the same inexpensive dinner table and chairs, but as much as you want to stray for the norm, you’re a sucker for simple Scandinavian design and are tempted by the same ones. But IKEA is more than just a store. It’s become a part of our cultural conscious, those big yellow letter legible from miles down the highway. Fortunately, the big Swedish giant provides for some good humor as well

Remember that guy who spent some time living in an IKEA? His venture pails in comparison to my new favorite find: IKEA Heights. It’s a mock melodrama, all taking place within the confines of IKEA. What makes this truly hilarious however is the fact that the IKEA staff had no idea the crew was filming.

And this is just the first episode… if you need some afternoon entertainment, you can catch episode 2, 3 and 4 as well.
