Apparently, North Korean Retribution Against America Involves a USA For Africa Song

Posted By on Tue, Feb 5, 2013 at 3:12 PM

The below video recently came through the Intertubes by way of LiveLeak, purportedly from North Korean state-run media outlet/propaganda machine Uriminzokkiri, and it's weird, you guys.

Apparently, the video depicts a dream sequence in which a man boards a space shuttle, orbits the Earth a few times, watches as both Koreas are reunited, and plays out a scene in which New York City is embroiled in flames—a scene, video gaming blog Kotaku points out, that was ripped straight from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Oh, and an instrumental of We Are The World plays over the entire thing.

Just...watch.

From LiveLeak:

"Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing," runs the caption across the screen.

"It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself," it added.

The video ends with the young man concluding that his dream will "surely come true".

"Despite all kinds of attempts by imperialists to isolate and crush us... never will anyone be able to stop the people marching toward a final victory," it said.

The North is expected to conduct its nuclear test as a defiant response to UN sanctions imposed after its December rocket launch.

Weird.
