There’s nothing that tests your sanity and/or your relationship like putting together IKEA furniture. The instructions are ridiculous, there are too many of them, the pieces aren’t always labeled or all included, and the entire process is guaranteed to break you out into a sweat.
Ryan Reynolds is a dad (with mom Blake Lively), and he’s posted a video of himself losing his mind trying to put together a crib. So, even though he’s hilarious and handsome and, you know, Deadpool, he really is just like the rest of us.
Reynolds starts by dumping out all of the pieces to his Hensvik baby crib, surveying the mess, and realizing he’s in way over his head.
After a few hours of struggling, he called IKEA for help.
“I think the biggest issue I’m having right now is that the crib didn’t come assembled…”
When the person on the other end of the line (presumably) stopped laughing and asked whether or not he could give them anything further to go on, he confessed that “besides a slow descent into alcoholism, I’m just really having trouble finding all the screws and the pieces that go with it. I mean there’s gotta be over 100,000 pieces that came with it.”
Unfortunately, because he is just like the rest of us, IKEA was unable to send anyone over to help.
Ryan, undeterred, grabbed another beer and a roll of duct tape and got to work.
He secured the corners with tape, grabbed a few extra cushions just in case, and called the project complete.
At least, until Blake gets a peek at his “finished product” and orders it to be redone ASAP.
Hopefully, he has some friends who can help him out…
And more beer.
