New IKEA Online Ad Combines Redecorating With Epic War On Garden Gnomes

It’s spring in the Northern Hemisphere, which means that it’s time to rake your lawn and perhaps haul your grill and outdoor furniture out of storage. In a new IKEA ad airing in the United Kingdom, a family picks up some new furniture, and the local garden gnomes declare war.

Perhaps this is because the furniture is kind of ugly, or the gnomes find plastic in the backyard to be blasphemous. (We wouldn’t blame them if they did.) The man in the couple tosses a gnome over the hedge after it kicks over an orange plastic chair in a quite understandable rage, and the war escalates from there.



Please, for the sake of peace in all of our backyards‚ don’t buy orange plastic chairs.
