With a musical score that would make a 1980s sex ed VHS tape blush, the North Korean propaganda machine pumped out another filmmaking gem Saturday, a work that successfully jammed stock footage of missiles going off over a narrator’s warped recital of American and North Korean joke burns before an artist’s cartoon depiction of Washington DC getting annihilated by a nuclear weapon unfolds and serves as the grand finale.

The four-minute video is titled “Last Chance”.

This from The New York Times:

“If the American imperialists provoke us a bit, we will not hesitate to slap them with a pre-emptive nuclear strike,” read the Korean subtitles in the video, which was uploaded to the YouTube channel of D.P.R.K. Today, a North Korean website. “The United States must choose! It’s up to you whether the nation called the United States exists on this planet or not.”

Such remarks are in line with recent threats and assertions from North Korea about its nuclear and missile capabilities.

“If the American imperialists provoke us a bit, we will not hesitate to slap them with a pre-emptive nuclear strike,” read the Korean subtitles in the video, which was uploaded to the YouTube channel of D.P.R.K. Today, a North Korean website. “The United States must choose! It’s up to you whether the nation called the United States exists on this planet or not.”

The video released Saturday is not the first of its kind. North Korea released one in 2013 that showed Lower Manhattan being bombed, and another soon afterward that showed President Obama and American troops in flames.

Slightly more titillating than The Revenant. Minus the star power.
