Edited to say that apparently this is a hoax, but I still found the concept amusing...

This hoax has come up in several different forms. In one they film university students who listen to a presentation on shit burgers being fed to the poor. The guys who present it have pulled off a number of other great gags.

Ooops - I did find it rather amusing though. Maybe I'd better go back and edit the original...

Hey, editing the original is cheating !!! I find that it often makes subsequent posts redundant or unwarranted. Most importantly, editing the original could water down some of the crazy and that wouldn't be much fun.

Don't suppose you have any links, do you Dale?

I've never learned how to do that. Someone will know who they are. They have crashed parties and made big announcements as they pretend to represent companies or government. I think one of their events was at a G 8 summit.

This actually is more prophesy than hoax. Someone will definitely come up with this in real time someday. I did find the plastic hand pointer rather odd but did not catch it as a joke. Funny stuff.

This concept is derived from the mockumentary "The Yes Men". Quite ingenious.

Everyone should watch it - plus it's on netflix!
 
And then we all jump out and yell "surprise! we got you this tiny ad!"
