IKEA Responds To Balenciaga’s $2,145 Bag That Looks Exactly Like IKEA’s 99-Cent Tote Bag, And It’s Hilarious
For those of you that don’t know, pricey fashion brand Balenciaga recently released a new bag. Worth $2,145. But that’s not the funniest part.

Needless to say, the internet had a good laugh about the whole thing, but now IKEA has also joined in the fun by mocking Balenciaga’s new bag in their own special way. Enlisting the help of ACNE, a Stockholm-based Swedish creative agency, the furniture giant has released a hilarious advert that helps people to differentiate between IKEA’s original Frakta and Balenciaga’s expensive impostor.
