It was only days ago that Kim Jong Un threatened the United States and South Korea by saying North Korea will “reduce the bases of aggression to ashes with its invincible Hwasong rockets tipped with nuclear warheads” if “even a single bullet at the territory of the DPRK” is fired. Now Pyongyang has released a propaganda video where North Korea blows up a U.S. aircraft carrier and bomber. But the special effects in the video are absolutely laughable.
North Korea’s state-run Uriminzokkiri propaganda website released the video to be outrageous and intimidating, but it just comes off as “Wow. That’s some shitty garbage editing. That looks like it was edited with a potato.” The pathetically poor video depicts nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson and a B-1B Lancer heavy strategic bomber engulfed in flames from North Korean missiles. A female narrator cheerfully describes the grim scenario as, “a knife will be stabbed into the throat of the carrier, while the bomber will fall from the sky after getting hit by a hail of fire.” The graphics are so ridiculously pitiful and 1999-ish that you could easily make a better video from your phone using one of those visual effects editing apps. That’s sad.
It comes almost exactly a year from when Uriminzokkiri released a four-minute video of equally shitty and comical CGI of a submarine-launched missile shooting into the sky and then blowing up the the U.S. Capitol building and the White House.
If they can’t even remotely edit videos properly, how the fuck do they even pretend to have mastered nuclear fission, nuclear fusion reaction, and warhead miniaturization?
The video was posted on Saturday, as massive joint military exercises were conducted between the U.S. and South Korea.
Also on Saturday, Kim Jong Un attended a ground test for a new “high-thrust” rocket engine and called it a “revolutionary breakthrough” for the country’s space program and “a great event of historic significance” for the country’s indigenous rocket industry.
On Monday, North Korea’s foreign ministry warned that Pyongyang is prepared to go to war with the United States.
“The U.S. should face up to the situation of the world with its eyes wide open. The DPRK has the will and capability to fully respond to any war the U.S. would like to ignite,” the state-run Korean Central News Agency quoted a foreign ministry spokesman as saying, according to the South Korean newswire service Yonhap.
“If the businessmen-turned-U.S.-authorities thought that they would frighten the DPRK, they would soon know that their method would not work on the latter,” the spokesman added. “The world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won by the DPRK in the recent ground jet test of Korean-style high-thrust engine will carry.”
President Donald Trump told reporters he held meetings on North Korea during the weekend at his Florida resort and said Kim Jong Un was “acting very, very badly.”
C’mon North Korea be better. Get yourself a copy of Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premier Pro. There’s even some decent free video editing software for say an isolationist country that has self-sabotaged their economy and starved their own citizens.
