Dutch pranksters go to a museum. They have some pictures with them. These pictures are cheap. They are from IKEA. However, nobody knows this.

The pranksters let people talk about the pictures. The people do not know that the pictures are from IKEA. The people talk about the pictures. They say what is great about them.

In the end, the pranksters tell the people that the pictures are from IKEA. Many of them laugh. Some are not so happy.

Difficult words: prankster (a person who plays pranks – practical jokes – on people), cheap (something cheap does not cost a lot of money), IKEA (a big shop with cheap things).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
