The Monkeys are continuing their weird and wonderful streak with the latest Ikea ad celebrating summer afternoons.

Inspiring Australians to rediscover the fun and happiness in everyday life at home, Ikea is showing how you can enjoy life in your own backyard. 

The spot is the first under the new platform, The Best Day is Everyday, and is a different approach from its last ad The Best Toy Ever.

The Monkeys co-founder and ECD Scott Nowell, says: “Telling more of a story around Ikea products creates a memorable way to stand out in the retail space and continues the Ikea mission to help Australians rediscover the happiness in everyday life at home.”

Directed by Rabbit’s Lachlan Dickie, the campaign will broadcast across TV and online and will be supported by Ikea owned channels.

Ikea Australia national marketing manager Kristin Bengtsson says: “Our new campaign celebrates the everyday like the once-in-a-lifetime day it really is and inspires us to look at familiar situations differently. It makes IKEA products the heroes and showcases their unique features and benefits in a way that brings a real sense of wonder and playfulness.”
