North Korean Propaganda Video Uses Footage From Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

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."
