Urban Pranksters GuerilLA threw a “house warming party” in several rooms of a Burbank Ikea this past weekend. Agent Benny and the Jets writes:
About 30-40 people showed up to one of the living room/kitchen sets at the Ikea in Burbank, bringing gifts (mostly things from other departments at the store). Many people brought cookies and snacks, and games like Jenga. The party was cut off after about twenty minutes by the Ikea staff, at which point Agent Tuttle, the “host” of the party, yelled out that it looks like we’re being too loud and that “the neighbors called the cops”.
GuerilLA had some New Year’s Eve style fun this past weekend. Agent Wilner writes:
In Santa Monica there are many crosswalks that have countdown clocks signifying how long you have until you can’t cross the intersection anymore. We gathered a group of 50 agents and counted down a number of those clocks – very loudly. At the end of each countdown we went nuts – hugging, hi-fiving, cheering, screaming, using our noisemakers, toasting with our fake champagne, etc. Just like on New Year’s Eve. It was amazing! We did this at about seven intersections along the Santa Monica Promenade and then dispersed.
Also worth noting is that two participants got engaged during the mission (you’ll notice they are congratulated at the end of the video.) What better time to get engaged than New Year’s Eve! On June 8!
We got onto a train, played music and danced. We had balloons, treats and face paint for everyone. We even gave out small cut out hearts to everyone on the train to lighten up their day.
So, we partied till our lungs fall out and our clothes were soak in sweat, everyone on the train were entertained. We got a spectrum of emotions from the riders, from laugher to frowns, from smiles to out right annoyed. BUT all in all, the joy of the atmosphere drowned all the negativities. Our agents went all out and danced, the music was retro with hits like ‘eye of the tiger’ and ‘everybody dance now’ and of course, no retro mix is complete without ‘never gonna give you up’ from Rick Astley.
Eventually, we were greeted by the station managers and a security guard. They informed us very nicely that we had to lower the volume and keep the dancing minimal but we decided to end the party altogether, mostly because we were exhausted.
When we got off, the station managers bid us farewell and we exchanged friendly gestures and even gave them our paper hearts, which they stuck to their uniforms.
Oh! Those IKEA room displays! Entire rooms full of furniture, lighting, rugs and notions. Any one of those rooms would be a great place to sit and entertain friends. They look so comfortable and inviting!
It was an invitation that Jason Adair couldn’t pass up. He decided to have a Fancy Dress Party at IKEA.
