There are few things in life that fill as with as much anxiety and frustration as trying to build something from the flat-pack kings IKEA. Sure, it’s roses and cupcakes when we’re cruising their aisles looking at all the perfectly matched and styled rooms. And we say to ourselves “Wow, that looks amazing. We could get that kitchen table and chairs for our place.” Then you proceed all optimistically down to the market hall to pick up your items and that’s when the dread sets it. “That’s a lot of boxes!” You think to yourself! Then you take everything home- still quite optimistic- take everything out of the box and notice that there are 5000 pieces and a squillion nuts and bolts. What do you do? Persist or hit the bottle?
It seems Ryan Reynolds felt the pain of self-assembling first hand recently when he attempted to build a cot from IKEA. It seems the new dad was no match for the HENSVIK baby cot. Finally, something Ryan isn’t good at!
Watch the video and take solace in the fact that we all hate IKEA the same! What’s Swedish for F you?! Ha!
