North Korean propaganda uses Oblivion soundtrack this time, shows nuke going off

North Korea’s propaganda arm Uriminzokkiri has released a new video this week, this time using music from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Perhaps more worrying however, are the images of President Obama and U.S. troops engulfed in flames, and the image of a nuke going off.

Kotaku has embedded the clip here. it uses this song from the Oblivion soundtrack, and makes for some troubled viewing. Chiefly because of this image:

Text translated by Global Dispatch apparently reads:

“Words spoken by the United States, a country that uses the law of jungle as the law of survival for fitness, is meaningless.

“As a result, North Korea’s high level nuclear test conducted against American imperialist invaders is a nuclear deterrent that protects our sovereignty.”

The clip follows another propaganda video that nicked scenes of New York City under attack from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, along with some rather worrying anti-American text.
