Ikea Canada 'it's not a mistake' by Zig Toronto

0.0 0 Votes

Ever looked at a receipt for Ikea purchases and couldn't quite believe how little it cost? This Canadian ad builds on that, to promote the Ikea sale. Created by Zig in Toronto and produced by Reginald Pike, it shows a woman who thinks she has been undercharged screaming at her husband to start the engine of their car so they can make a quick getaway before Ikea staff realise the mistake. Presumably Canadian Ikeas have bigger carparks than in the UK, where an attempt at a fast escape -- especially when a sale was on -- would surely be futile.
