This comedian roamed Ikea pretending to be a couples therapist

Ikea is a love/hate phenomenon that continues to amaze and fascinate people, but it can also be a source of conflict within relationships, as tastes may differ radically while couples browse the aisles.

This comedian roamed Ikea pretending to be a couples therapist

Comedian Tyler Fischer decided to poke fun at this common scenario by putting on a parody show in a store claiming to be a Swedish couples therapist there to check on couples who may be finding shopping a tense experience.

Tyler warns people to be careful when shopping "as 90% of couples break up before they reach the cash register."


This is a ridiculous made up figure that achieved its aim of striking fear into couples all over the store.

The comedian then proceeds to tell people various translations for the word Ikea including ’breakup’ in Swedish, ’I want to kill you in Polish’ and ’anxiety attack’ in German.

The prankster also introduces a couple to colours such as ’argument blue’ and ’regret white’.


Check out people’s reactions to this hilarious gimmick.
