See the North Korean propaganda film that takes footage from Modern Warfare 3

Modern Warfare 3

The North Korean administration, eh? What are they like? Take this latest propaganda film, for instance. Watch as the unconscious mind of a young man who has never seen 2001: A Space Odyssey travels into space via animated space shuttle to get the best view of the homeland through a technicolour telescope. But what’s this we spy? America! A war-torn New York, cribbed from Modern Warfare 3.

Beliefs will be beggared.

“Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing,” reads the accompanying text, as translated by LiveLeak. “It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself.”

“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.”

The soundtrack, as you may or may not have clocked, is Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson’s ‘We are the World’. Brilliant. I’d like to see Activision try and chase up the copyright on this bit of errant footage.

Thanks, Kotaku.
