While puns can be the perfect way to exploit irony, they can also prove to be extremely annoying.
One man decided to test the patience of his girlfriend by rattling off puns based on Ikea’s furniture model line names. The man said in the video’s description:
“We moved in together recently so had to make the unavoidable trip to IKEA; I figured out how to get through there as quickly as possible.”
At first, Donna seems to be amused by her boyfriend’s cheesy sense of humor, but by the end of the video, her tolerance just about runs out.
Posted on August 13, the video has gone viral with over 635,000 hits. The man who filmed the video said on a Reddit thread that he was surprised by its popularity as he thought it wouldn’t go beyond entertaining a few Snapchat friends.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community. Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone's support. We love you all and can't appreciate you guys enough.
