The lights are on
A video showed up recently on North Korea's official YouTube page that features footage from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. It's a strange video that features a North Korean citizen dreaming of a nuclear attack on the United States, while a looping instrumental version of "we are the world" plays in the background.
The video and its Call of Duty clips was first discovered by LiveLeak, which was able to translate some of the text flashing on the screen:
"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."
"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."
You can head here to see the video. The Call of Duty footage begins around the 2:10 mark.
The official YouTube version of the video is already being blocked with the notice, "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Activision Games Inc."

It's sad that the word imperialist is far from wrong...but NK feels like that one kid sitting in a corner dreaming of beating up a bully.
Why do they even try? They just embarrass themselves further.
Well that escalated quickly
They're like that little militaristic country in Civ that is down to its last city, yet still having to be a little *** and get in the way and try and make themselves appear still relevant.
oh North korea.
NORTH KOREA IS BEST KOREA!!!!
North Koreans are funny
lol. I love it when NK over measures the size of their ding dong. Also, the 90s called. They said they want their crappy video editing software back.
I'm pretty sure if Activision wanted to they can hire a group of mercenaries to take out all of North Korea just for plagiarizing CoD, or can probably develop a better Nuclear Program that can produce a fully operational ICBM in less then a month just to show off.
My word, what is your problem, North Korea? I know your leaders are nut jobs, but still.
This is supposed to be propaganda? Looks like something they play during nap time in Kindergarten..
Well from a friend of mine that was stationed in SK television, cell phones and Internet are not allowed in NK. So yea this is false.
Wow, the *** people come up with never ceases to amaze me
