IKEA Heights

IKEA Heights was a soap opera shot inside an IKEA store without IKEA's permission.

Only seven episodes were made (about four years ago), as after a few episodes IKEA caught wind of it (apparently through the press) and the actors' photos were circulated in the IKEA security room.   

It was a truly novel idea featuring (intentionally) corny dialogue and (intentional) bad acting.
The random IKEA customers passing through, wondering what the heck is going on, are perhaps what made it even funnier.

Here's episode 1:
