Ikea courts fresh controversy with pregnancy ad

You can take it to the bathroom, pee on it and if the test results come back positive, then the ad will reveal a discounted price for the crib.

Numerous pregnant women are taking the test to earn a discount on a crib but Twitter is going insane with the unapologetic advertisement.

Every day life can be tiresome at times, but it also contains those magical, life-changing moments. And interestingly, this is doubling up as a pregnancy test.

The ad doubles as a pregnancy test.

A new advertisement by IKEA, running in a Swedish magazine is weird for all the wrong reasons.

'They really want people to bring pieces of paper that were peed over to get a discount for baby cribs? In order to scale up the technology as well as make it work in the format of a printed ad, Mercene Labs used its experience developing surfactant materials for microfluidics and medical diagnostics.

The pregnancy test strip uses antibodies that bind to the pregnancy hormone hCG, which causes it to change color. And that it fits nicely into IKEA's "Where Life Happens" brand.
