IKEA has posted a video to announce its new 2015 catalog. As you’ll quickly notice, it’s a direct parody of the 2010 iPad launch video featuring Apple executives. IKEA video is above, and the Apple video is below for comparison. (via SetteB.it).

Oh, and the packaging (via comments):

  4. I love IKEA, so I give this a pass. A bit long, but a fun parody, right up IKEA’s alley.

    BTW most of the images in the catalogue are computer generated and not real photos.

    This is tasteless and lacking in class. How dare anyone make fun of shiny Apple products. Boycott Ikea!

    (HEY OLLIE-SON, did I get the fake outrage right?)

    The iFixIt teardown rates it a 1; Copious amounts of glue holding the pages together. If one page tears the only recourse is to request another catalog!

    Yeah, this is the really environmentally sane choice for a sustainable living.

    –Want to read about something else, or an update? No problem – just get yourself an entirely new device.
    –Want to find something old? No prob either – just go dig in the rubbish heap.

    …and Ikea try to call themselves green – bah!

  19. You’ve missed half of the story Mark! Ikea has a companion app that works with the catalogue. It allows you to scan a page and then see items in the catalogue in videos – and I’m presuming order items on that page through the app. It appears they may even be a virtual reality component to the app, allowing you to visualize the size of furniture in a room before purchasing. All I did was google Ikea Catalogue…
