Ikea, Memorialized Before It Even Opens

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The video you see before you is tender, slow pan of the Red Hook Ikea site, set to the tune of Abba's 1974 hit song "Waterloo." It doesn't get any better than this, folks. As for the opening date, per official sources we are now looking at a window of March through July of 2008, a slight shift from the previously forecast date of "spring 2008." You heard it here first.
