Ready To Be Creeped Out by (of All Things) a Furniture Ad? [VIDEO]
It’s dark and scary in the IKEA building, and as a child tricycles through the halls, you can hear faint whispers in the background. This is the start of the clever Halloween IKEA Singapore commercial, based on the classic Stanley Kubrick horror film The Shining. The young boy riding his tricycle through the building recalls the character Danny in the film’s Overlook Hotel. At the end of the commercial, the boy comes across two people dressed in the same outfit, much like the infamous twins from The Shining. They turn out to be the boy’s parents, but, in my opinion, it’s really too soon to conclude that his father isn’t an ax murderer.
