What is up with the weird video about Detroit?

Share on Nextdoor
According to this weird video we just stumbled across, Detroit is recruiting New York hipsters to come " basically almost live for free" as one interviewee reports. 

The makers of the video are AJ+, which is part of the Al Jeezera Media Network. The "global news community for the connected generation" posted the video on their social media channels just a few hours ago and we're still trying to figure it if it's supposed to be satire. 

One MT staffer noted, "This thing is like a parody of itself." Actually, that staffer was Lee DeVito, who's been following Katoi's "Detroit: Now Hiring" campaign. 


So, what do you think. What the fuck is up with this video?
