Chinese Couple Busted After Trying to Livestream ‘Sleepover’ at IKEA Store

We’ve seen Chinese girls live-stream themselves while dancing on busy streets and on top of toilets. It’s a popular and sometimes very lucrative activity, especially if there’s a chance to earn up to $20,000 a month.

This time, one pair in Beijing hoped to join the club by streaming a “sleepover” episode. While their idea seemed pretty decent, the location they chose said otherwise.

According to People’s Daily, a man, identified by his surname Zhao, and his female companion arrived at the city’s Siyuanqiao IKEA store and started to webcast on Saturday evening. About 8,000 people watched, reports Beijing Evening News.

Zhao hid in a wardrobe and continued streaming as the store started closing at 9:56 p.m.

However, the pair’s adventure ended too soon as security guards caught them by 10:20 p.m. Police officers came after.

Still, Zhao kept the webcast on and viewers were able to hear his conversation with the cops, though nothing was visible. He revealed that they were inspired by foreigners who stayed overnight at other IKEA stores:

“We just wanted the experience, but definitely had no ill intentions.”

Zhao apologized to the IKEA store, but his account at Yi Zhi Bo, the streaming platform, has already been blocked. He claimed earning some 100 yuan ($14) from the stunt, but others believe he made about 60,000 yuan ($8,650).

It’s an unfortunate attempt for one adventurer, but still more tolerable than this guy who raped his dogs for the whole world to see.
