Shocking propoganda video or farce?

    This video has gone 'viral' today on MSN Canada:

    Surely must be a farce? Any thoughts?

    46.2 million Americans live below the poverty line.

    But that video is still a bit much...

      Thank you pdsearch, I was certainly not trying to make light of the hardships people are facing, just shocked by the video, wondering if this is how N America is actually being portrayed?

    Beat laugh of the week - Thank You!

    I particularly liked that the birds (in the dead of winter) have all been eaten - they're yummy!

    That the wall phones no longer work - there's no one to call.

    That the poor, the lonely and the homosexuals all sleep together in one room - I presume you won't want to be gay in N Korea?

    That there's lots of snow in America to make coffee out of.  Wonder what they use in Texas?

      So you are thinking it's a farce?

        I really don't know.  It actually sounds like something I could see the N Koreans putting out for their own people, but they also have to know that most 1st world citizenry knows better.

        I also question why it is on the web at all - something sneaked out to MSN, completely faked, what?

    lol it's got to be a parody

      That was my first thought.

      I'm going to get in line for a cake and some good N Korean coffee!  (Is coffee even common there?)

        I'm pretty ignorant about N Korea, but top news on Canadian radio today was US plans to establish 14 new anti nuclear missile sites on the west coast from Calif to Alaska because of the N Korea's latest sabre rattling.
        And then when I went online I found this!

          I saw that, too.  At this point, a perfect response, I thought. 

          But this video is priceless.  I still can't decide if I want it to be true or it's better than some created a farce.  Funny as heck either way.

            I just went back to the site and it is listed under 'funny' and 'most watched' so I'm going to assume it's a parody. Sorry I missed that.

    This is clearly a black propaganda.

      Wow, it's everywhere. Thanks. I didn't register for LiveLeak so couldn't read the comments. Did you read them Pretty?

        According to a couple of comments, from those claiming to understand Korean, the translation is a farce.  No mention of eating snow, eating birds or homosexuals.

          Well there it is. Thanks wilderness.

            Now I'd like to hear an actual translation.  It's pretty obviously a propaganda film, but what are they actually saying?

    Lol.  If this is really how the NK's portray us, I am quite disappointed with their lack of cleverness.

      Looks really dated. May be a montage of old news clips. Curious. Interesting that it's gone viral. Definitely black, (Borat meets Monty Python). I wonder who made it.

      Ya, that should have alerted me that it was supposed to be a spoof.
