The Internet was shocked to discover this week that we’ve all been saying IKEA wrong for years

The revelation came in a tweet by Los Angeles YouTuber 'Mac Does It' when he shared: “So IKEA is pronounced like (EE-key-uh) not (EYE-key-uh) and no one was gonna tell me?”

Hundreds of people commented on the post, and it turns out he is right! YouTube tutorials confirm the EE, not EYE, pronunciation. A spokesperson for the company previously confirmed the pronunciation, noting the founder of the company “pronounced it with a typical Swedish accent: 'Eee-KEH-Yah'.'”
