North Korea is apparently planning to conduct another nuclear test and the hermit kingdom is also stepping up its propaganda offensive against the west, namely the United States.
Its latest effort seems harmless enough, it’s a YouTube video which had gone viral for all the wrong reasons.
The video depicts a young Korean man dreaming of glorious future for the DPRK, which involves some sort of space shuttle orbiting the earth, a rocket launch followed by a US city in flames and a lot of other cheap 3D nonsense. Who ever came up with the video has a rather unusual taste in music, as the nuclear attack unfolds to the tune of “We are the world.”
Needless to say, the captions are unflattering and equally tasteless.
“Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing,” the man dreams. “It appears that the headquarters of evil, which has had a habit of using force and unilateralism and committing wars of aggression, is going up in flames it itself has ignited.”
It is all a bit disturbing even by North Korean standards. Luckily, the US is in good hands. The video was promptly yanked from YouTube after a complaint from Activision. The video features scenes of Manhattan in flames from “Call of Duty,” so it had to go.
Apparently, even a nuclear armed despotic regime with the fourth largest standing army in the world is no match for Big Content.
