The first thing I thought after reading this was that it reminded me of the movie/book 'Never Let Me Go'...

I read this article yesterday, and I was curious as to whether it was intended as a point of reference to the general public regarding the conditions of broiler chickens and subsequently to highlight the disgusting state of the industry.
I'm confused as to whether this is serious or not, however I think this project has been useful in bringing to light the nature of the meat industry in a creative way that has shocked large numbers of the meat eating public... maybe?

Am I the only person who sees this as a (relatively) good thing?

I would prefer them to work on lab grown meat.
