This latest IKEA advert shows a young boy keen to brighten up his mothers regular dark and lonely walk home from work.

Aware that his mum has to journey alone through many dark streets and walkways each night, the lad enlists the help of neighbours to collect and set-up a trail of lamps, thus lighting up his mothers route home. The ad then finishes with the slogan ‘Life’s Better At The Flick Of A Switch’.

The piano-based song you hear playing in this commercial is called ‘Lighthouse’, an emotional piece of music from the Canadian singer-songwriter Patrick Watson.


Released for download back in April of 2012, this track is taken from the Montreal musicians fourth studio album ‘Adventures in Your Own Backyard’.

Timed nicely to coincide with the nights drawing in and the temperatures dropping, this 60-second version of IKEA’s ‘Welcome Home’ TV ad was uploaded to their UK YouTube channel on the 30th of September, 2016.
