In this IKEA Canada ad, a towering monster made up of used belongings stomps through a town, occasionally shedding pieces of itself which in turn wind up in the homes of residents who can use them.

Titled “Stuff Monster,” this spot--which unfolds to the Cat Stevens track “Tea for the Tillerman”--is part of IKEA’s mantra to design products that lend themselves to repair, recycling and reuse, thus eliminating waste.

Mark Zibert of Scouts Honour directed “Stuff Monster” for agency Rethink. VFX studio was a52.
