Original headline read:

What American (sic) look like to North Koreans

Chicken Fried Internets: How do they not know that hot snow is...WATER.  Just effing water.  It's not like Korea doesn't get snow.  Hilarious nonetheless.

Hot Ice. Genius!

The Hobo sleeping indoors on chairs in a room with electricity looked like paradise to some North Koreans

If these were supposed to be Americans, why was one sitting in front of a sign for Dell Computers that wasn't written in English or Spanish?  Also, Dell computers haven't been considered expensive since the 1990s.

I'm just bummed I missed the North Korean Government hand out line that was here in the U.S.  I'm also assuming that there are several starving North Koreans who are just as bummed that they also missed that line.

Mentat: And in another, a bearded, apparently homeless man waits in line for food from a street truck vendor. "This man, a former Republican candidate from Oregon, is having to get coffee made of snow from trucks," our narrator grimly intones.

Please.  There are no Republicans in Oregon.


Not any more.

MrEricSir: autopsybeverage: MrEricSir: In a certain sense, snow is the main ingredient in coffee.

In a certain sense, hydrogen is the main ingredient in coffee.

Well duh, that's why it works with Mr. Fusion.


Roads? Where North Korea's going, they won't need... Roads.

Is this propaganda video for real or is it too weird even for the North Korean government?

I'd say almost nothing is too weird for the No. Korean government; but if you're not sure about the translation, here's an idea: Find someone who speaks Korean, and as them to translate. Then you'd know for sure if this is real propaganda, or some South Korean film student's idea of a funny.
 
2013-03-13 12:56:55 AM  
I lol'd.  This is some really funny shiat.

I don't know about you guys, but I love to drink coffee made from snow.

hubiestubert: You know what's sad? The real America would be far more of an indictment. and far less believable to them...


What? that was real Ameerika and that North Korean camera crew should get a cinematography award for their brave work and the guy that handed that poor lost soul the cup of North Korean coffee should get a Nobel Peace prize, but the west is so biased ; )

/I'm thinking the thing is fake though, so sad.
//No I mean fake as in NK didn't produce it.
 
2013-03-13 12:57:48 AM  
It's too bad that to the poor north korean peasants, fire roasted blue jay, and a cup of snow-joe and a nice tent is an upgrade. When your last crock pot dinner was grandpa, or little timmy who didn't make it through the winter, some blue jay probably sounds pretty farking palatable.

In a certain sense, quarks are the main ingredient in coffee.

All the certain edible avian varieties have been eaten.

sno man: that translation has to be off.... Too funny:  there are no birds in the trees, apart from these.  These birds will be eaten on Tuesday... and they are yummy.  Awesome.


Came to post this. :)

I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a bird in a tree today.

They are yummy.
 
2013-03-13 12:59:09 AM  
Funny, but I call shenanigans. The other legit propaganda videos that came out were in there native Korean first, then translated. It makes no sense for an English version of this to arrive first.

Some student film maker probably made this for fun.

Intrepid00: EdNortonsTwin: I assumed this was a parody of some sort when I saw it a week ago.

The part about being no birds, except for these in the frozen tree, which will be eaten Tuesday..."yummy".  It  comes off like a Comedy Central short.

I bet the translation is way off but not as off as we think. Besides they are right. The pay phones probably don't work.


I also assumed those were scenes (and dilapidated phones) from eastern Europe.  Can't say for sure since I've never been there.
 
2013-03-13 12:59:30 AM  
'In parts of America, cleverly disguised as European countries...'

That was about where I gave up and died laughing. Holy fark. God, I feel so, so sorry for the people in NK if this is for real, you know they've gotta be going 'wait...what? oh, ffs, that doesn't even...'.

so, does anyone know if coffee is the one unrationed thing there, or what? they kept stressing people only get 1 cup of coffee per day like that was a big deal
 
2013-03-13 01:00:38 AM  
This is what Americans really believe North Korea thinks of Americans.  For some reason they have British narrators, also.
 
2013-03-13 01:00:59 AM  
This is the kind of shiat that goes viral right before an immediate and expected collapse.

When you think about it, it's not far from the truth. Admit it.

I just assumed the video would be not safe for work and include Dennis Rodman's penis...at least that's what Kim Jung ETC likes to look at....

sno man: Snarfangel: They'd better be careful. The North Koreans living on bark will be jealous of our bird-eating ways.

And snow. American snow is yummy.


even the yellow one

I've never heard someone who spoke Korean speak that slowly.

Honestly, the video was terrible. But they could have come here and actually shot footage and used that. With the proper editors and audio people they could have made us look any way they wanted to. Have they never seen a presidential campaign? We are the undisputed kings of propaganda.

Koreans & their coffee.... check out the translation of "Gangnam style"

A girl who is warm and humanle during the day
A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
A girl with that kind of twist
I'm a guy
A guy who is as warm as you during the day
A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
That kind of guy

they know this isnt true rght?  i mean worst korea soap opera dvds are smuggled across the border regularly, so they know the lifestyle of worst korea.  and at worst the us must be similar, if not better, right?
 
2013-03-13 01:04:34 AM  
I think there's a trend right now of mock NK produced propaganda videos.  Go to liveleak and there's another one about NK sending their first man in to space, that's so funny I think I peed a little....

ok fine, http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=b68_1362959193 here it is.

Given the quip about a Republican, I'm guessing this is fake.

No doubt. Thank god for Obama's "cup of hot snow for americans living in cities cleverly disguised as Europe" program.
 
2013-03-13 01:05:40 AM  
So all they did was take some American propaganda and change the words around?
