As anyone who's expecting knows all too well, baby gear and furniture can be
pretty pricey. But if you have your eye on a crib at IKEA, all you have to
do is take a pregnancy test to get a sweet discount ... a pregnancy test
that's actually built into the IKEA ad. Yes, really.

The eyebrow-raising ad, which will run in Swedish women's publication Amelia
magazine, uses the same technology as over-the-counter pregnancy tests you
buy at the drugstore. In other words, you dropper a little bit of your urine
on the strip and if the test result is positive, the ad reveals a discounted
price on a crib.
