    I’d never go to Ikea to buy anything. But I would go to Ikea to see these guys. Ikea ought to hire them.

    Paulr wins with the very disturbing “Brazil” reference.

    “see the pretty well camouflage effect in a real situation.”

    yeah, this’ll come in great if i am ever attacked in an ikea.

    funny, but stupid and pointless.

    Okay so I’m in Ikea to get some iron-on transfer sheets so I can make some Free The Octopi tee shirts for a protest rally.

    This creep dressed as a paper pile keeps bugging me about how cheap their reams of saffron paper are. So I chase him out of the store with my Bic lighter.
    He can’t see very well, I guess, ’cause he runs into a re-cycling bin just as the Shred-It truck arrives.

    If you should open a ream of paper and there’s a fingernail or a bit of cillia imbedded in a few sheets, say a few words for the paper boy.

    That’s brilliant! Those are foam dishrags, by the way, not coloured paper.

    Actually it’s a guy camouflaged as a pile of dishcloths at “City Gross” a Swedish supermarket.

    The other pics are IKEA though.

    Is that Robert De Niro?

    With the prevalence of CCTV, I’m guessing we “see” runway-camouflaged runway offerings at next year’s Fashion Week.

    Does anyone know who’s the artist?

    Just the thing for sniper-shooting spit balls.

    Paging Mr. Tuttle/Buttle!

    I did some statistical analysis on the ships of the Italian Navy in WWII. This was the only one with a large proportion of camoflaged ships (known to be camoflaged at the time of loss), with the rest as a control, about which details of their fate were known. The difference was not statistically significant.

    I think these are just leftover costumes from old Doctor Who shows.

    And then there was the time I camoflaged myself as a blanket and hid in my bed so my brother couldn’t find me. Dare I say, what’s the point?

    The Paper Pile’s arch enemy is the Iron Broom.

    Are you sure this isn’t just an occupational safety video warning of the dangers of working in a office supply warehouse?

  21. Alex_M says:

    I found a whole website devoted to Swedish urban camouflage artists..

    This is not too dissimilar to the stuff we used to do in a warehouse I once worked in– when business is slow, employees improvise entertainment in great ways. Or at least they used to until the internets provided hours of silly videos to watch.

  23. dainel says:

    #22 cattermole, perhaps thats because the Italian Navy during WW2 did not employ Swedish camoflaged artists.

    @ #3 Troofseeker: you crack me up!

    Ikea sells office supplies? The Ikea near me only sells furniture and meatballs.

    It may come in handy at times, notably IKEA, being able to get out of an IKEA warehouse unspotted by customer service staff, can be really helpful.
