Officers rushed out to the branch of the furniture store in Braehead, Glasgow, after reports of people turning up to the shop and hiding in cupboards, fridges and beds.
Why? Blame Facebook!
The bizarre story comes after more than 2,000 people signed up to a Facebook event set up to take the childhood game into Glasgow’s branch of the Swedish megastore.
Seems more effective for this giant game of hide-and-seek versus other Facebook gag events such as “show up with your fan and blow away the hurricane.”
And then there was that lets all storm Area 51 event. Unfortunately, it was cancelled.
