VIDEO: North Korea uses Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in propaganda to show U.S. city burning North Korea uploads truly bizarre video.
The video shows a man as he sleeps, dreaming about blasting off into space, and seemingly circling the Earth in what looks like a really cheap model of a space shuttle. All the while, "We are the World" is the tune that is playing along.

Later in the video, around the 2:15 mark, you see a burning city draped in an American flag. The burning city appears to be New York, and the footage seems to have been lifted right from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

"Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing," the caption reads, according to the description on LiveLeak. "It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself."

Given that a North Koran nuclear test is apparently imminent (in response to UN imposed sanctions), you would think they could at least make a better video, right?

Ridiculous!

I'd like to see this video hacked and have a burning KOREAN CITY subbed in for the burning American city.

That county is useless and a menace. Too bad all the other countries don't just go in and take over and divvy up the land between the conquerors.
