Below a picture of Van Den Puup....am Van Den Puup, elite designer. I was put on earth for a reason: to allow
the human soul to touch and be touched by miraculously beautiful furniture.
As you will undoubtedly have seen from my justifiably high profile
publicity, my crusade against the big stupid blue place, IKEA, gathers in
strength and momentum!
IKEA's the bomb.evoluzione said:intersting, but i happen to think some (note: some, not by any means all) of the stuff in ikea is fabulous, especially at the price. I'm not rich, i con't afford to waste money on the name of a designer.
it's been doing the rounds for the last month, and is kind of an extension (atleast in the UK) to the campaigns they've been running all year.Abstract said:How did you know that it was funded by Ikea before there was any proof?.
They have been cultivating a very different sort of image in the US. The ads are deadly serious.iGAV said:it's been doing the rounds for the last month, and is kind of an extension (atleast in the UK) to the campaigns they've been running all year.

You have a link to that - damn funny and a whole lot better than anything we get here in the US.MemphisSoulStew said:Wasn't it a (probably spoof) IKEA ad with the middle aged couple running around the house - him naked except for a pig mask, and her dressed up as a farmers wife. She had just cornered him - after much squealing - when their daughter walked in with her boyfriend. The punch line was "Time to move out..."
And there was another one with a little boy playing with cars and planes and a shiny chrome device that looked like a rocket, until he managed to switch it on and it started vibrating. I think this was advertising IKEA storage boxes.
Because the videos were too well done for some schlumpf to have made in his spare time. That and the fact that they were blatantly pushing Ikea products.Abstract said:How did you know that it was funded by Ikea before there was any proof?
Could be that their Gay friendly ad was criticized by some a few years ago. And the ads recently that took a subway car and transformed it into a room went over the heads of many consumers.Mr. Anderson said:You have a link to that - damn funny and a whole lot better than anything we get here in the US.
The whole Van Den Puup spoof would appeal to a large range of consumers here as well, I'd imagine. Don't know why IKEA thinks the US is so tight....
That last bit though, where the dad takes the picture to cover up....and its a glamor shot of the daughter?!?!?! Pricelessteabgs said:commercials are so much better in Europe! that pig one is F-in great!
