Apparently a subliminal way to get rid of mice...

Funny idea. The slow-motion shot of the cat landing on a glass table was awesome!

Cat's are soo curious because they have 9 lives they would waste the first 8 and be really careful on the last one.

I don't understand the intention.
Is it to give some "cat-energy" into the store in means of esoteric?
Is it to give the cats some pleasure (I don't believe they are really happy)?
Is it some way to bring money to creative teams?
But what about customers, who are allergic against cat hair?
My opinion of Ikea doesn't change measurable.
I would expect more impressing ideas by the image I had from Ikea before.

A lot of cats, man. Whole night in the store...

There's nothing like the smell of cat poop in the morning.

I think it's smart :
Cats are very picky and lazy ... always picking the right spot to relax & sleep for hours.
If they invaded IKEA store, you should probably follow their example ;-)

IKEA wembley actually opened late after the weekend of filming this advert due to missing cats still around the store! It eventually opened an hour late, though I don't know if they found all the cats!

I bet the marketing person that came up with the idea is that funny smelling eccentric woman that lives in a basement apartment who wears old lady hats and has 17cats she that she refers to as her children.

is it just me, or in the near future, furniture stores won't ever be looking like nowadays ones, in respect to actually having so much space reserved for useless sets nobody would buy: and just implement the jewelry concept of ordering upon measurements, and wait couple of weeks for the delivery at your door steps 8-)
