Duck and cover! North Korea can’t get its missiles to fire correctly, but maybe they will kill us with creepy videos.
A North Korean man dreams next to his Canon camera, possibly hoping to impress Kim Jong Un. What does he dream about–food, maybe? No. In this propaganda video, released earlier this week, a bad karaoke version of “We Are the World” plays as he dreams of destroying the United States and reuniting all Koreans.
Mashing up 1990s-era space animation, stock footage of a N. Korean rocket launch (before it explodes in mid-air), and the destruction of New York ripped from the Call of Duty video game, this video shows the nadir of state-sponsored Final Cut.
The captions read in part: “I had a dream last night, a dream of soaring into space on board our Unha-9 rocket… Our Kwangmyongsong-21 spacecraft got separated from the rocket and traveled through space… I see black smoke rising somewhere in America. 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… Just imagine riding in a Korean spaceship. One day, my dream will come true. No matter how hard the imperialists try to isolate and stifle us, they will not stop our people’s path toward our final victory of achieving a unified, strong and prosperous Korea.”
