IKEA Experiment with Time Travel #IKEAtimetravel

by Susan

Susan here to share a fun video with you. This post is sponsored, but my opinions are my own.

IKEA is a shopping experience unlike any other. Their unique layout sends you winding through a path of possibilities for designing your home that sets your mind in motion imagining your future.

In this fun new video, IKEA goes further and invites a young couple to take a much bigger step in envisioning future stages of their lives.


Watch the video and imagine how you’d respond…

In a “time travel” illusion, world-renowned hypnotist Justin Tranz, approaches a young couple shopping in the store. This couple doesn’t yet have children, and he puts them in a deep trance and then guides them through a time journey revealing shocking details of their future.


They meet their “future” (and not-so-sweet) daughter on her 6th birthday…


then fight with her as a teenager…


and have a very awkward and humorous encounter in the bathroom with the her future boyfriend, years later.


Justin Tranz has performed in over 6,000 stage shows and is the only hypnotist in history to ever legitimately perform on Broadway.

With the Time Travel Experiment, IKEA collaborated with Tranz to highlight events that change how we live and our everyday lives.

“The everyday is exciting! It’s on those seemingly ordinary days life happens and changes. And when it does, so does our home”, says Johan Wickmark, Global Catalogue Manager.

I have never been to an IKEA as the closest one is over 400 miles away. And no, I have never been hypnotized.


22 Rebecca Parsons August 27, 2014 at 7:12 pm

I almost went to Hypnosis comedy but nah, changed my mind at the last minute. This is cool though, I would love to see it.

I have never been hypnotized nor do I think I want to be. I would hate for some word to trigger a reaction that I couldn’t control years later.



32 Thomas Murphy September 12, 2014 at 12:21 am

I would love to be hypnotized!
