This IKEA ad doubles as a PREGNANCY test!

IKEA ad

IKEA’s Swedish agency Åkestam Holst have created an advert that doubles as a pregnancy test, bringing pregnancy test technology to the printed page.

Yep, you heard that right, if you wee on the actual advert and get a positive result, the page will reveal details of a special sale.  

It’s currently running in one of Sweden’s most influential women’s magazine Amelia.

The ad is made in collaboration with Mercene Labs, who said: ‘In order to make the interactive functions of this ad work in reality, we had to make several technical advancements.’

Adweek said: ‘This is definitely the coolest pee-based advertising since Animal Planet put urine-scented ads at the bottom of lampposts to attract dogs (whose owners then saw a larger ad at their own eye level promoting a dog award show).

The good news is you don't actually have to take the soggy paper into your local IKEA if it's positive, we hope!
