I don’t think I’ve met anyone to date who dislikes Ikea – or Ikea’s furniture as a concept. I never thought Ikea would have any relation to indie music though, of which I’m a big fan, but guess what – the day has come.
The latest Ikea campaign is around their kitchens, and features music by London-based band Man Like Me, who have covered Jona Lewie’s ’80’s hit ‘You’ll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties’ (which was featured on Top of the Pops in May 1980, no less). Jona Lewie even makes a special appearance in the video.
If you watch the full-length 3-minute video on YouTube, you can click on the featured items and buy them from the Ikea Kitchens site. The 2 model-type girls in the video look a bit scary, but otherwise well done, Ikea!
