Ok, this one is really a matter of taste. But how can a building be boring, that has been called tacky and tasteless many times? And in contrast to theme parks, here one can find the famous prototypes increased in height by about factor three instead of beeing shrunk - so Al Yaqoub Tower has an impact of its own, if we like it or not.
A better finishing of the facade might be helpful though.

I know they're skint, but they could always paint one on.
Get one of those poor Indian construction workers in to move the hands round, wouldn't cost much the wages they pay.

So they'd need a bigger pot of paint.

No no, was talking about your sugestion of putting a indian worker up there to move his hands ..... too short, but you know what, we can put Prince Filip up there. He's tall enough, and perhaps for the first time in his life, he can do something useful

No, they'd be better off picking somebody who's really butt ugly, to make the building look a bit better in contrast.
Besides, the age of that old geezer, I don't think he can move his hands much these days.

When the building itself is a fake/copy then the Clock should also be fake. Painting clock arms on the walls is a good idea. Will really match with this ugliest building of the world.
