With the trend for hypermarkets sweeping the Czech Republic, film students Vit Klusak and Filip Remunda created a huge advertising campaign for a fake one, complete with brand philosophy, special promotional offers, jingles and a website.

 

In reality, all that exists is the façade of such a store, situated on a plot of open land.

 

Can their thoroughly crafted hoax lure a public already well-served by such establishments?

 

Watch, learn and be amazed, as these two Czech dreamers deliver a timely lesson on the power of media manipulation and the limits — or lack thereof — of our materialistic hunger.
