Odd. From Tom Cole's mouth: "Another freewheel idea we had in the past. We made a display for O.B.
tampons that shows a girl who waves her arms and legs when you pull the
(tampon) cord. The baseline says : O.B. for more freedom of movement." I'm sorry but yanking a girl's tampon cord is "freewheel?" I think something got lost in translation between here and Ikealand.
"A Dutch designer has created a wall of fake breasts to help male shoppers buy bras that fit their wives or girlfriends. "When
trying to buy a sexy bra for their wife or girlfriend, usually they
point to other women in the shop or, when asked about size, they say a

As part of The Spunker's celebration of IKEA-land week, here are some juicy new interstitial promos for Swedish MTV. The spots are loosely wrapped around the transmogrative powers of a "MTV Me" popcan drink. Pop music, pop soda.

So this site gets checked out and it's...a Valium enema nonthreatening. But who is this m~y~s~t~e~r~i~o~u~s Bladt?

A search for "Carsten Bladt" shows only 18 hits, one for a forum message board hosted atclan.noerd.dk with several posts by our friendly stranger. Here the trail runs cold, because I can't read IKEA. An image search reveals what appears to be Carsten's homepage. Note the picture (above) of one Sebastian Bladt, wearing a totally IKEAn tshirt with a mysterious ABI01 imprint. The prosecution rests. Here's your press, Mr. Carsten Bladt: your site sucks, IKEA is a pederast.
IKEA's new 360° flash site lets you spin around several IKEA environs, matrix bullet-time style. Or would we consider this champagne-cork-time style? Be careful, the site is written completely in Ikea. That is to say, Swedish.
