In North Korea’s version of events, as Manhattan is destroyed by rockets, “We Are The World” will be playing and it will look very much like Call Of Duty. At least, that’s what a new bizarre and often uncomfortable propaganda video suggests.
Just days after calling the U.S. the “sworn enemy” of North Korea, the video surfaced on YouTube this weekend. The video is set up like a dream sequence, showing a man sleeping at first ,then images of rockets coming towards the world. At one point, Lower Manhattan is in its crosshairs and rockets are shown coming down. Viewers will hear a cheesy instrumental rendition of the ‘80s hit “We Are The World,” giving new meaning to a song that is supposed to encourage peace.
The video also shows how advance North Korea hopes its missile program will be in a few years. The man imagines that he can leave earth. “I see stars and the green Earth. I also see a unified Korea,” the man says.
“Meanwhile, I see black smoke rising somewhere in America,” the man adds. “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.”
A narrator ends the video with the message, “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.”
