Dublin Coastal Development: Hoax or Developer's Hooley?

category dublin | housing | other press author Monday September 25, 2006 10:16author by d'other Report this post to the editors

Who's behind this viral video and planning application.

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 promise. A similar style of ad has been circulating on the Irish inter-web as a viral video. 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.

Although it's proved to be a great hoax, Seamrog City has highlighted the possibility that land reclamation in Dublin Bay may be a thing of the future. Witness the PD's plans for a "Manhattan-like" skyline for the Port area.


Funda.ie may be the recepents of a lot of free(?) publicity but Is this a case of a joke revealing a greater truth?
