This IKEA ‘Gravity’ Parody Is Hilariously Dead On (Video)


This IKEA parody to the blockbuster 3D sci-fi film “Gravity,” which starred George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, is dead-on and pretty funny.

The trailer begins with the words, “At over 346,000 square feet. There is no sense of direction. No silence. Bad cell service. It’s like way too big. Life in IKEA is impossible.”

As a couple is perusing the larger-than-life store, they get separated. The girl then calls the guy, stuck in another section of the store, saying, “I don’t know where I am; I can’t stop spinning.” This moment is similar to Sandra Bullock’s moment in space, when she gets detached from her vessel and is left spinning in outer space.

Stop spinning,” the guy replies. “This store is designed to keep you here. There’s like one exit.”

He asks for a visual, and she attempts to read the Swedish writing on a furniture pamphlet. For the rest of the video, they accurately depict the urgency of being stuck in outer space utilizing the IKEA space as a backdrop. For a video comparison, see the original “Gravity” trailer:

As of now, the video has more than 100,000 views on YouTube.
