If Ikea Was Like This All The Time, I Might Actually Stop Hating It

I can't believe I'm conspiring to advertise a furniture store on my blog, but this is oddly spellbinding:

The "making of" video:

And a rather funny parody:

I couldn't help noticing half my household furniture when this ad started, and also noticed how different it looked now after the cats have had full access to it!!!

Thanks for posting! Wonderede how it was done! Mine would attack every other cat on sight!

That parody is just brilliant - made me laugh out loud!

LOVE all of these. And yes, (dogs) DO suck. Bigtime.

Fantastic. I saw this the other day and wondered what mine would have done if they'd been there.
I reckon Oliver would have looked for a sofa and settled down, Tammy and Tilly would have been off checking for mice (before settling down in an open drawer, Tammy sleeps in mine now), Dexter would have started a fight then headed for the cafeteria, Marly would have been up in the ceiling and Kismet would have just immediately settled down on the floor to lick his bum.

What would each of the Under the Paw cats have done? And other reader's cats?

what an awesome marketing idea, some good looking cats there too

... and now that store will have to have some kind of clearance sale on the damaged furniture... i'm sure some cats couldn't resist scratching the shit out of rugs, bed bases, mattresses and sofas :)

they should have filmed that aspect

I just imagine that hairless cat looking at the light bulbs and going "ooh! naked, just like me!"

funny! without doubt my most toublesome pud Lenny would have made a 'dirty protest' on the palest, plushest sofa he could find, then enquired whether we were off to habitat or dfs now? stain factor is always the decider in my home furnishing choices...
