Trippy, dreamy ad for Ikea beds. Woman tumbles from bed to bed in the air.

And it's all set to the dialogue from Shakespeare's The Tempest Act 4, scene 1, 148–158.

As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.

Because why bother actually writing your own copy when there's Shakespeare.

    Pretty awesome in execution ... but not quite perfect.
    Finding the storytelling a little clumsy, though - also it has strong poetic moments. The talent has no expression. Why is she first choosing to jump and than rolls out of the bed. I prefer the latter...
    Still a pretty strong piece of work.

    The falling body next to skyscraper images are quite disturbing. I'm pretty sure that a few of us only think of one thing at the sight of that.
