Prankster Ikea Ad?

Source: Ikea News, October 2007

One must assume that the above spread from the Ikea October mailer is prankster commentary that we are living through the end days of civilization. Children will be sealed in video game headphones while parents watch cozy fires on TV and our giant couches will assure physical distance to match the emotional distance required to accept our inevitable fall.

Is it a clever inside joke or did the marketing company really think this was a good idea?
