Ikea often does humorously naughty ads around Valentine's Day. Two years ago it did a fun promotion offering free cribs for babies born nine months after Valentine's Day. And last year it stacked a pair of chairs suggestively in an ad with hot wood-on-wood action.

Now, Ikea Singapore continues the tradition with the BBH ad above, posted to social media—showing off the chain's new line of "beds." Pretty cute, though I'm not convinced that bench is up to the task.
