In 2009, a group of actors  and comedy performers came up with a genius plan and to covertly film episodes of a comedic-melodrama in their local IKEA store in Burbank, California.

And as if that wasn’t bonkers enough, they decided to film the series without the store’s permission, and while it was open, meaning that all the extras in the show are actual IKEA customers.
