North Korea releases propaganda video using ‘Call of Duty’ footage, Michael Jackson song

There’s no need to dive under a table or go for your bomb shelter.

A video, released by North Korea’s official propaganda website  Uriminzokkiri, depicting a bombed-out New York City under an American flag is not actual footage — it’s from ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.’

The opening scene of the video focuses on a Korean man fast asleep. In his dream a rocket is launched into space. From orbit, the spaceship surveys a happy, peaceful North Korea. It then travels to the other side of the world, witnessing the above-mentioned destruction of New York City. A second rocket is shown launching, and then the screen refocuses on the still sleeping man.

And while North Korea supposedly knows a lot about nuclear weapons, the country apparently knows less about copyright laws. The video accompanying Mashable’s article has been removed “due to a copyright claim by Activision Games Inc.”

The propaganda video also features the song “We Are the World,” a track recorded by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie in 1985.

This isn’t the first time in recent memory that North Korea has done something ridiculous. In December, the Korean Central News Agency reported discovering the lair of an ancient unicorn.

Though the video comes in the midst of speculation about further North Korean nuclear testing, nothing suggests that it is anything more than propaganda. New York City remains yet unscathed.

    Yes well I take them seriously myself , if the N Koreans are as tough and willing to fight now as they were in the early 50’s I’d take them seriously as a heart attack . I saw and witnessed 1st hand how the ROK’s fought in Vietnam and damn if I would want to fight them ..I had Uncles who survived WW2 to be killed in the Korean conflict and they will have China and Russia backing their play..

    I understand that Korea and Nam were just police actions and far from a real shooting war like we’ve been engaged in for the last 12 yrs but dead is dead no matter what the non fighting politicians call it . But I’d never underestimate or trust the N. Koreans

      One of the greatest reasons why japan never even considered invading the United states is that their own advisers told them there would be an American behind every blade of grass with a Rifle. But the North Koreans are probably much like Iraqi’s military chiefs, using World war one Tactics to fight a 21st century war. This time around, it will be very one sided. And China and Russia will be on our side and then take control of the rebuilding efforts or should I suggest Building efforts since the North does have much in the way of an infrastructure
