Sunday song day.

Looking at the past few weeks it has become clear Sunday's have become song days. Either videos that feature IKEA products or songs by people who just love singing about IKEA. Today I have one more for you.

This is a parody song by Owl City with a video that was filmed inside an actual store (which is quite frowned upon, by the way). It amuses me how the song progresses from awe to frustration. I've seen many a shopper, new to an IKEA store, get the look of someone who thinks there is no way out. Just maybe, they will be trapped forever.

Lyrics under the video.

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million home supplies
Appeared and taught me how to live

I test out every bed
Look! I'm on a movie set
You'd think me straight
I just can't help but frolic

I like to make myself believe
That I could die here happy
Everything I'd ever need is right in front of me
I think there's something wrong with this TV
Nap time..

I take a thousand steps
When do these arrows end
Either Deja Vu or I've been here before

These employees are jerks
And there arrows don't freaking work
Because if they did I wouldn't be asking you
How to get out of here!!

I like to make myself believe
These magic arrows help me
With every step I'm lost again
My legs can't walk no more
I don't think they have an exit door
How is this a lamp?!?

I find it kind of hard to believe
That there's a food court right next to me
If i never left how did I get here
I think I saw this in the Twilight Zone once
Nobody inside made it out!
What are you looking at?!

My points of latitude and longitude are
30 north 100 west
I'll be on the couch that's on your left

I like to make myself believe
That somebody will save me
