Fake Family Lives In Real IKEA

Guy Ben-Ner shot a short sitcom in which a family drama is played out while the characters are depicted as living inside an IKEA. They shot it in within three different IKEAs, one in Berlin, one in Israel and one in New Jersey, and its edited so the action flows seamlessly between the scenarios. Real customers walk by and at one point almost steal the camera. Amusing commentary on consumer culture and geopolitics and damned clever idea.

Possibly NSFW for mildly suggestive language at the beginning.

    That is the real test of a relationship setting up something from Ikea with more than 8 steps.

      That’s why I recommend putting it together yourself. Better to be swearing under your breath instead of at your partner :)

    The only part I liked was the bed scene and my enjoyment did not stem from the acting.
