North Korea’s fledgling nuclear-apocalypse film industry has rolled out another blockbuster. Taking cues from its successful ‘North Korean dreams of nuking America‘ film a few weeks back, the DPRK has released a new video which could be titled, ‘Everything American is on Fire.’
Featuring stunning 3d effects (that hallway!) and a riveting soundtrack (which was apparently stolen from the American videogame ‘Elder Scrolls’) the video was published on North Korea’s Uriminzokkiri network on February 18th. The bulk of the video is a slideshow of America-related images, overlaid with a looping image of fire and menacing text. We are then treated to a 3d-trek through a North Korean nuclear bunker, with graphics that look as though they were designed on Windows 98.
One of Shanghaiist’s favorite North Korea sites, NKNews.com, translated the video’s message:
North Korea has succeeded in proceeding with this nuclear test despite the United States’ increasingly unfair bully activities against North Korea. That United States that has no respect to others nor appreciation to equality…
It is not incorrect to state that the United States strong hostility policy and endless violence toward North Korea in the past 70 years has helped North Korea become one of the world’s strongest military power states.
Words spoken by the United States, a country that uses the law of jungle as the law of survival for fitness, is meaningless. As a result, North Korea’s high level nuclear test conducted against American imperialist invaders is a nuclear deterrent that protects our sovereignty.
Thus, the United States has practically guided North Korea towards nuclear testing and therefore needs to be considered as an American virtue.
North Korea’s third underground nuclear test! Let it be known once more that this is strictly our practical counter-measure for North’s safety and to protect its sovereignty from the aggressors. It is also a solemn warning that time is no longer on the side of the United States.
The people are watching. America should answer.
“Time is no longer on the side of the United States,” but apparently video games are still the Americans’ domain, as both this video and the last featured elements stolen from US-made games.
