Video: Ikea Heights

Ikea Heights is a melodrama shot entirely in the Burbank California Ikea Store without the store knowing.

That’s the summary written on the series’ main page. It actually sums up the contents of the site and initiative very accurately. Ikea Heights as an internet soap shot in an Ikea store in Burbank, CA. The actors are all amateurs and the camera work isn’t very professional too. But it all looks very funny and the idea is good.

The Ikea ‘rooms’ in the store want to make you feel at home and are therefore completely furbished. The step to record a play or soap isn’t such a big one after all. The most fun part is that, it seems, the store owners do not know people shoot a serie of videos in their store.
