Sexy Spanish Ikea Commercial

Caliente Spanish Ikea Commercial Urges Us to Enjoy Life's Simple Pleasures

With this sexy new commercial, perhaps Ikea hopes to convince the public that its affordable beds are sturdy enough for activities beyond sleeping. The ad, which is not safe for work but apparently safe enough for Spanish TV, goes inside the Ikea-furnished bedrooms of Spanish lovers. Nothing is left to the imagination as barely clothed couples (OK, some women are topless) roll around in bedspreads you may recognize. It ends with a sexy slogan that works perfectly for the brand: "No es mas rico lo que mas tiene, sino menos que necesasita" — "One isn't rich when he has more, but when he needs less."

The commercial, being played heavily on Spanish TV, would likely outrage many Americans. But I think it sends a wise and healthy message. Would you take offense if you saw it on your TV during prime time?

I could imagine how this kind of ad can offend people, especially parents who don't want their younger kids seeing this but I actually love this ad. It isn't vulgar or sleazy, its done very tastefully! :)

Love it. The commercial seems fun, liberating and exciting. There's really nothing taboo about what's indirectly stated here. It's not like it's promoting promiscuity or anything bc the relationships shown forth here are vague but dynamic.

I think it's great. And I love that they featured an older couple too (although i'm not older). It's not just sexy young things that can get it on :)
