Toilet brushes, mattresses and other furnishings unite in a TV spot and Twitter feed

Ikea has elevated humble household fixtures to the rank of heroism, thanks to a new campaign created by Swedish agency Forsman & Bodenfors.

"Everyday Heroes," directed by Academy Award-winner Joachim Back and voiced by Terence Stamp, evokes the grandeur in coat hangers, toilet brushes and other common objects.

In addition to the new TV spot, Forsman & Bodenfors has launched a Twitter account that gives voice to these unsung heroes of the home.
