Pair arrested for trying to spend the night in Ikea


Two friends who tried to hide in an Ikea outlet overnight to livestream the experience were busted by security guards. 

Over the weekend, a Beijing man named Xiao Zhao and his unidentified female friend decided to duck into a large closet in Ikea just after closing time, the Beijing Evening News reported.

Although some 8,000 people tuned in to their broadcast, it only took about 10 minutes for security guards to find the pair — presumably from the sounds of Xiao Zhao trying to narrate the event live.
