IKEA trolled Kanye West after the rapper expressed his desire to collaborate with the Swedish furniture giant during an interview with BBC Radio 1. Yeezy told BBC Radio personality Annie Mac that he wanted to partner with IKEA and launch his own home collection.
“I have to work with Ikea – make furniture for interior design, for architecture,” he said. “Yo Ikea, allow Kanye to create, allow him to make this thing because you know what, I want a bed that he makes, I want a chair that he makes.”
IKEA heard ‘Ye’s call and responded in the most Kanye way possible. In a Facebook post on the IKEA Australia page Monday night (Aug. 1), the furniture giant responded: “[Hey] Kanye, we’d love to see what you’d create…we could make you Famous!”
Obviously, the company was playfully referencing his recent single of the same name where he raps about, among other things, making Taylor Swift famous. The photo attached to the caption is hilarious. It’s an three beds lined up next to each other, big enough to sleep all of the famous people featured in West’s controversial video.
Fans reading IKEA’s response have been cheering on for the collaboration on social media. Folks are already calling for the Ikeezy collection to happen with a line of tables, beds and toilets.
So who knows? Kanye West might get his wish. Anything is possible.
