This may be the most bizarre (and unsanitary) coupon ever

This is without a doubt the most bizarre and unsanitary coupon promotion I have ever seen.

Ikea is offering a crib coupon in a Swedish women's magazine and the only people that can make it appear on the page are pregnant women. And what they have to do to make it appear on the page is the unbelievable part.

In order for the coupon to appear, a pregnant woman has to urinate on the coupon. Yes, you read that correctly. If the pregnancy hormones are present, the coupon will appear. It uses the same technology found in pregnancy tests.

According to CouponsInThe News, the ad states: “Peeing on this ad may change your life. If you are expecting, you will get a surprise right here in the ad.”

Can you imagine being the cashier who has to accept this surprise coupon at the store?

What do you think - is this a clever promo or way over the top?

Thanks to CouponsInTheNews.com for sharing this unique coupon promotion!
