Sexy Home Furnishings

It's hard to make semi-disposable home furnishings a sexy product. The evil Swedish geniuses at IKEA, however, decided they would take on this challenge, but the results were a little disturbing. The concepts, on paper, are almost charming: A young adult embarrassed by her parents and ready to move out on her own (necessitating affordable but practical furniture); a couple in love and desperately in need of a new bed. However, on your way to this pitch you encounter a woman wielding a pitchfork chasing a naked man in a pig mask and serious erection innuendo. Unsurprisingly, these commercials never made it to television.
