North Korea makes the best anti-American propaganda videos these days. It’s just as confusing and ridiculous as we want it to be, and we get a few surprises sprinkled about. This time around that surprise is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which fits the “confusing and ridiculous” theme so well.
The video, brought to light by LiveLeak, features a man’s dream that contains:
- An instrumental version of “We Are The World” by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie
- Launching missiles
- A terrible CG spacecraft, complete with sparkles dust
- A well-timed clip from Modern Warfare 3 depicting New York being attacked
According to LiveLeak, the text on-screen during and after the New York scene (which starts around 2:08) reads “Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing.”
This is followed by “It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself.”
The man sleeps soundly. He knows that his dream will “surely come true”.
Not the worst, not the best. I’d give this a 7/10 on the propaganda scale. I think there should be way more sparkles to show North Korea’s true superiority. You’ve got to dress to impress, guys.
