Halloween Themed Ikea Commercial

Late night shopping shouldn’t be like this… Out of Singapore comes a commercial for IKEA that echoes the size of the stores, while also delivering some scares. The ad is an absolutely brilliant homage to Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining, as little Danny Torrance bikes through the store, as if it were the Overlook Hotel, and eventually runs into the infamous “twins”.
