The lights are on
North Korea recently stole footage from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to place in one of its government propaganda videos, and now it has taken music from The Elder Scrolls for a new video.
Unfortunately, the video has already been blocked, so I wasn't able to audibly confirm if the music actually appears, but ZeniMax claiming copyright on the video seems like a good identifier. Before it was blocked, Global Post reported that the video apparently featured a warning for our President which involved him getting set on fire, and it was all set to Elder Scroll's stirring score.
Thanks to Aaron Summers for the news tip!

I saw it before it was taken down. Yes, it was TESIV: Oblivion theme.
I love how Activision doesn't give a ***. Anyway can't get what's up with NK, that they imagined using content from video games, as a good idea.
Nuke spell in Skyrim would be epic...
wow zenimax moved fast on this.
I feel good that I just got ZeniMax to file a copyright claim against the North Korean government. In your faces!
lol I know it's not good to laugh because North Korea is ran by a bunch of crazies, but why would they use a theme from Oblivion? I mean does North Korea not have any cool music to burn stuff to? Maybe they think Oblivion is like a brand new game over here or something.
Kim Jong Un is Dragonborn? I did not see that coming... Well after seeing this I guess it does makes sense.
Tes Iv? Thank god...I was worried they had learned dragon shouts
NOBODY F#$KS WITH ZENIMAX! Has Korea learned nothing from Interplay and Notch!
That said wouldn't it be in Zenimax's best interest (ominous music swells), to foment hostilities between the west and Kim Jon Un, in order to bring about the apocalypse fortold in Fallout?
