IKEA Employees In Scotland Thwart Hide-And-Seek Game

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. A bunch of people in Glasgow, Scotland, wanted to play a game - not just any game - a huge, massive game of hide-and-seek inside the local Ikea. And funny enough, when Ikea employees caught wind of the plan laid out in a Facebook group, they weren't that into the idea of 3,000 people hiding between the Malm beds and the Ektorp chairs. So they called the police. And now you see me; now you don't. When hiders and seekers showed up to play, the Glasgow Police just turned them away. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
