North Korea 'propaganda video' uses Modern Warfare 3 footage

Shots of bomb-ridden New York feature as We Are The World plays

The North Korean state media has allegedly released a propaganda video featuring footage of a bomb-ravaged New York City taken from Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.


The video, uploaded by North Korean propaganda agency Uriminzokkiri (via Kotaku), is entitled "Aboard the Galaxy" and shows a man dreaming about a nuclear missile taking off from North Korea, flying around in space then landing on America.

It's accompanied by an instrumental version of We Are The World, the USA For Africa song written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie in 1985.

The footage from Modern Warfare 3 can be seen at the 2:11 mark in the video. According to LiveLeak translations, a caption at the bottom then reads: "Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing. It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself."

The video ends with the claim that the sleeping man's dream will "surely come true". It adds: "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."
