Of all the modern relationship trials that a couple can experience, is there any worse than a trip to Ikea? It's the crucible in which breakups are forged, a near-literal maze where couples can get stuffed on meatballs and frozen yogurt before arguing about everything from interior design to money to whether or not they want to have children. And that's just before they take the stuff home and try to put it together.

Comedian Tyler Fischer decided to run with this idea and add a soothing—or at least amusing—presence to Ikea by posing as a couple's therapist in the store. Did he solve any problems? Maybe not. But he at least diffused some tension.
