    Default IKEA Heights

    It's a soap opera filmed using the IKEA in Burbank's pre-built rooms as sets, but without the store's permission or knowledge:

    Episode 1: http://vimeo.com/4921692
    Episode 2: http://vimeo.com/5380039
    Episode 3: http://vimeo.com/5783352
    Episode 4: http://vimeo.com/6354694

    It's also getting rave reviews:

    wmgaretjax says "fantastic".
    miscorrections applauds it as a "brilliant idea".
    Still-ill is wowed calling it "incredible".
    mattpach stand in "[awe]".
    BlackSwan gives it rare praise with "glorious".
    indietron is surprised by how "great" it is.
    thefunkylama found it "[inspirational]".
    dorkfish found the twists and turns to be "stunning".
    Dale Gribble swears that it's "genius".

    That is a great idea. Although I don't know where everyone got the idea that just because you're doing comedy, you don't even have to try to act.

    1: Locate little button with a triangle in it.
    2: Click little triangle button.
    3: Enjoy.

    I can add pictures if you need me to.

    Truth. There was some really inexplicably poorly acted scenes. I was still entertained, though, so I'mma let this one slide.

    Someone had told me once there was an IKEA somewhere with a train ride inside of it. Is that true? I was never able to find anything confirming or denying it.

    Eh, I wasn't really expecting stellar acting performances. Just me I guess.

    The acting is reminiscent of a big budget porn film.
