Ever wondered what North Korea dreams about? Well the government showed their hopes and dreams through a propaganda video that was posted on the web. The video showed a visual of a man dreaming about North Korea accomplishing their nuclear space program uniting all Koreans as well as the destruction of America using an instrumental rendering of the famous song “We Are the World” in the background.
The video was uploaded on Saturday by North Korean propaganda agency Uriminzokkiri, which releases news and propaganda from North Korean media. The video starts with a man falling asleep next to a telescope who starts dreaming about North Korea’s achievements taking part in this bright future. The video uses computer graphics and effects to show a space shuttle flying around the world showing a united Korea with people cheering.
The space shuttle then heads towards the United States, where we see scenes from the video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 showing New York under attack and completely in ruins. The end of the video shows the young man saying that his dream will come true.
In the final caption of the video, it translates, “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 most disturbing part of this video besides America’s destruction is the music playing in the background of the whole video, which is Michael Jackson’s “We Are the World.” The video has been viewed more than 60,000 times since Tuesday.
The video comes out after the UN tries to figure out North Korea’s nuclear program and prevent another arms race from taking place.
