Dublin Coastal Development: Hoax or Developer's Hooley?

Anyone able to cast their mind back over the Robocop film franchise should be able to recall the many Omni Consumer Product ads featured in the film, with their distinct dystopian undertones amidst a sea of false consumer promise that sought to ever more wed the broken citizens of Delta City to their privatised servitude. A very similar style of ad has been circulating on the Irish inter-web as a viral video. The question of who's behind this viral video and planning application is on many people's lips at the moment. Produced by the 'multi-disciplined, multi- talented' Wasaki Global Corporation it details the plans to build three islands off the coast of Dublin, complete with a replica Howth, 42,000 flats, 3 golf courses, several motor-ways and a giraffe only zoo. Yeah right says you, next they'll try and resurrect Atlantis. Word on the blogosphere would suggest that it's the work of an ad agency called Chemistry who conceived it as a stunt to launch new property website Funda Ireland. Clever bastards, eh? Well clever enough to take in a certain Labour politician on Morning Ireland earlier today.
