Dublin: 19 °C Friday 14 August, 2020

The 'Official' Crumlin Shopping Centre Facebook page is absolutely glorious

Parody social media work at its finest.

ONE OF THE stalwarts of South Dublin’s shopping scene, Crumlin Shopping Centre is well known to locals and visitors alike for its central location and its unique setting.

But now its (unofficial) Facebook presence has taken a step towards the hilarious.

A parody page for the Centre was set up two days ago and already has over 3,000 likes. Why is it growing so fast?

Well, it’s hilarious

And full of historical factoids

It serves as a useful public announcement platform as well

It’s not afraid of dealing with the controversial issues that every modern shopping centre faces

They were quick to call foul on a rogue administrator, though

But, given there is already a real page for the shopping centre, it hasn’t really fooled anyone about the parody nature of this ‘official’ page.

Needless to say, the internet loves it

Give the page a like here for all the shopping centre-themed comedy you could possibly want (and if you’re like us, that’s a lot).
