A melodrama filmed entirely on location in IKEA Burbank has hit the interwebs. IKEA Heights is the brainchild of Dave Seger and Paul Bartunek and has been featured in a story in the LA Times.
IKEA’s reaction? Says IKEA spokeswoman, Mona Astra Liss, “I thought it was very playful and fun and complimentary to our brand,” However, “We didn’t give [Seger] permission. People need to ask.”
The real question is, will there be an episode #5?
