This was on a few years ago. I'm sorry the screeching woman is back.

Maybe 30 years ago from the look of the Volvo they are driving.

I was going to post this very commercial but you beat me to the punch. On another website this commercial got flack for apparently teaching impressionable kids that not alerting a cashier when the bill is too low and instead driving off without paying for the correct bill is okay. I personally thought her high pitched "Start the car! Start the car!" screech was the most annoying part.

Damn I think this commercials original airing was 2011 or 2012 not sure. Other than the yelling this a fairly benign ad!

Oh, this one again... 
At least now the ad can have some real context, like
 
She was standing near an IKEA dresser when a kid climbing on it got crushed as it fell, and, rather than sticking around to be blamed for the little Darwin Award winner's death, she ran out of the store screaming her catchphrase...   LOL

I thought I saw the end of this sh*t years ago.  The local channel has been airing this back to back multiple times all week! Assuming I didn't get the message in the first 15 second ad.

Ikea had to settle a a lawsuit a few weeks ago for crappy falling cabinets, they can't afford to create a new ad to they have to recycle this 4, 5 year old mess.

That's a new one on me. I hardly ever see Ikea commercials here.

1.  Why is this "summer sale" ad airing now?
 
2.  I usually ignore ads that say "Up to 50% off selected items".  "Up to"???  "Selected items"???  Those terms are meaningless.

My biggest problem with this spot is the music. For those not in the know, it's from the original Star Trek series.. and was a battle theme.. NOT a "flight" or "escape" theme.

Context, people. Context.

You'll have to explain that reference to me, srg.

There are some modern day things I'm still culturally illiterate about.

The commercial's premise is silly, but I think the woman is kinda funny.

The first rule of fight club is that you don't talk about fight club.
The second rule of fight club is that you don't talk about fight club.
(oops! Embarrassed )
 
The movie is pretty good, and the book fills in details about the movie.  Wink

I don't know if it is my old OS (Windows 7) or the fact that Yahoo keeps trying to take the page I am viewing away.  I'm getting pissed!! Angry
 
ABC had a news story this morning about what demographic buys IKEA furniture.
 
22 to 34 years old. I guess in your 30s you become successful enough to move on up from this bullcrap cheap furniture.

That was the last time that shrew shrieking wench probably shampooed her hair. I wonder if she's the little sister of the bowtie nerd ass wipe from the H & R commercials of recent past? (Thank God so far, bowtie douche bag hasn't made the 2017 final cut of H & R block commercials. Someone at Ikea must have felt sorry for the nerdlinger family especially since Hillary the cow lost the election. Nerd Gay Guy Bow Tie and Start the Car shrew both seem like the types that wet their pants when she blew the election. Though the car and the nerd girl look like they landed straight from 1986, lots of times in Long Island, North Jersey, Ct. or Westchester Co, NY the folks are rich but drive beaters because their fellow citizens feel the Indy 500 was a Chariot race, drive on sidewalks and make picking off runners and other pedestrians a fun sport so why tool around in decent wheels? And the auto insurance and all the government regulations would make driving anything nicer than a Jurassic Volvo a losing venture. Now, their drug dealing mob peeps drive the new wheels. Hit them and you end up joining Hoffa in one of the support beams of The Meadowlands or other God awful fortress up yonder.

Hopefully, her and her nerd spouse will make it through tomorrow's inauguration. I hope not to read or see on TV or Facebook, "murder suicide because Hillary Clinton is not our next POTUS." Somewhere in Commie Meadows, NJ, NY, MA or CT a middle aged couple drove their aged 1987 Volvo into their Prius totaling it then drove into the Hudson. This couple starred in a commercial for IKEA. The wife, pulled tufts of her sweaty bed head smelly hair into her nerd husband's face while he drove the Volvo into their Prius. Said husband was so overcome by the stench it killed him behind the wheel. Smelly haired Stop The Car Wife then screamed; "Without Hillary or Bernie in the White House, life is not worth living. She then took hold of the aged tank's steering wheel, jumped on the lap of her dead nerd husband and proceeded to drive the car into the Hudson River off the George Washington Bridge. Witnesses saw the car sink rapidly and the last thing they saw were the worn bumper stickers on the rear bumper proclaiming they were avid supporters of PBS, Starbucks and Apple. Then there were bubbles. Today several dead fishies and mafia bodies surfaced on the top of the Hudson. Believed to be caused by the dirty oily stench hair of the woman who will always be remembered in perpetuity as bleating: "STOP THE CAR, STOP THE CAR."
